‘Fake Time’ by industrial-synth project Cearley & Dwinell is a lopsided album, mucky to the core, its rhythms all squelch-and-grind. This music of vital Cabaret Voltaire reverence fits perfectly with the albums cover art, a brilliant piece of retro optical trickery designed by Dom PY. Released via Polytechnic Youth, this collaboration between Nathan Cearley (Long Distance Poison) and Mark Dwinell (Forma) is limited to 300 vinyl copies.

- Fake Time by Cearley & Dwinell
Today's second new Polytechnic Youth record is a slight departure for the label, in that its grooves are subsumed under yer 'Actual Techno' and -- whisper it, in case Eno is listening -- 'Ambient'. Nathan Cearley (Long Distance Poison, Deep Distance label) and Mark Dwinell (Forma) are the dynamic duo behind the mechanisms and machinations on ‘Fake Time’; three tracks in all, making up quite the ride to the other side of the Mind’s Eye. Aye, that’s the one on the nicely stylised screen-print-type design, front of sleeve.
Opening track on side A ‘September’ finds the lads wearing their Cabaret Voltaire reverence and reference on their sleeves; these pummeling pulsations are preposterously partytime. A2 ‘Real Ambience’ isn’t incorrectly named as it turns out; it’s like a summation of Basinski’s ‘Disintegration Loops’ juxtaposed with all the best bits of Brian Eno’s ‘Apollo’. Music For Baldy Technoheads, baby. Flip the record over though and you get ‘May’: it’s an even deeper exploration of the Voltaire / Throbbing Gristle axis, with extra cosmic bits sprinkled on top. Like the best cappuccino, it’s just a little bit salty.
