New one on The Bug's label Pressure. Not sure what else I have to say really. It's bloody heavy techno. Incomparably. Uncompromisingly. Just so very heavy. And that is no surprise, after all this is Godflesh's Justin Broadrick we're talking about. Whether there or as part of Napalm Death or Techno Animal, or hell, as JK Flesh. In Your Pit Ep is as it sounds. An unrelenting exploration of space and weight that'll destroy any dance floor.

- In Your Pit EP by JK Flesh
Sometimes you listen to a record and all you can think about is how you’d like for it to pummel you into the ground. I’m no audiophile but there are records for which a quick go on the headphones will never be enough. It should come as no surprise that JK Flesh’s In Your Pit EP is one of those records. After all, it is released by Pressure, Kevin ‘The Bug’ Martin’s record label, a record label which shares its name and spirit with Martin’s own Berlin based club night which uses his own custom sound system.
For those of you familiar with Martin’s work, I’m sure you’ve already realised that this is quite uh, bass heavy? In fact it’s almost all bass, the kind of bass you want to feel passing through your entire body. Just take a look at the waveforms on Soundcloud. They’re completely unrelenting. And I'd ask for nothing less. The title track seems to be built of oscillating sawtooth waves martialed by a 75 BPM kick drum. It’s intense in the most dread inducing way possible. Something about the density of the bass in combination with a funeral march of a tempo makes for a skin crawling (and earthquaking) experience.
The rest of the tracks follow a similar formula, but JK Flesh adds a bit of screaming white noise (‘Rub Me Out’) and sometimes he gets the filters out (‘Paranoid Archetype’). But as much as I’m enjoying In Your Pit, I can’t help but think, I wish I had my head stuck in one of Kevin Martin’s bass bins right now.
