Surprise, surprise yet another Planet Mu release and this weeks installment is somewhat of a departure from the breakbeat science of recent weeks.
Uniform is the alias of 2nd Gen
and his latest work 'Protocol' is a downright dark, sinister, brooding
electronic album if ever I heard one. Drones, pulses, distortion,
layers of effects, static crackles and the glorious sound of machines
malfunctioning. Its noisy but not in your face blistering ear shredding
noise. There are
collaborations with some of the masters of the game here too Lydia Lunch, Dalek, Alan Vega
of Suicide, Terry Edwards
etc. Some of thee vocal contributions are processed with effects and
some are spoken word type affairs. I'm sure I just heard darth vader on
there. This is a cracking album and I'm going to take one home with me
to annoy the missus.
