Not a new bit from Night Slugs/Fade to Mind O.G. Kingdom, but there’s shared ground here in Kindohm's through-the-looking-glass approach to club music. However, RISC Chip lurches around far more than usual club fare due to it being born from live-coding. It’s a glitchy and glitzy record that makes for engaging listening. Only 100 pressed and out just in time for Christmas.

I don't know what the hell they are playing next door - some kind of twiddly jazz skronk that has gone on seemingly for two days now. In the normal course of events Kindohm's live coded brutalist techno would be a bit much for my soft puppy dog ears but I'd rather listen to anything but wank-jazz so I've got it blasting out the headphone.
What we have is a long player wild metallic electronics and scattered beats which is at times as squiggly as any AFX release but occasionally (and I'm looking at you the second track whose title I can't read as it's spinning around the player) is warm and melodic with lethal doses of squelch synth. There are moments of Squarepusher-esque wild abandon with things chopped in that early 2000s stuck record style. The closing.....ah feck.....is probably the most innovative thing on offer with a kind of malfunctioning skipping beat gamely trying to keep time with some splurting synth vomit.
It's hard work at times but really I was left with no alternative than to enjoy this.
