[COMBAT 22] :: Neil Landstrumm / Ebola / SES : Acid House James May E.P.

Posted in weaponry Apr 9, 12:46  

Following fiercely after the Scorn/Bracket assault of Gravel Bed, COMBAT022 sees a collaboration between techno legends Neil Landstrumm, Tobias Schmidt and the electronic instigator Ebola from Brighton’s notorious Wrong Music crew.

All 4 tracks explore the mutant no-man’s land between electro, bass-tech, grime, techno, dubstep and glitchy electronics.

Side A sees Landstrumm fusing his beefy, warm analogue dread bass and scorched dubsirens with Ebola’s crisp, surgically precise electronica edits, to give a growling mutant half-stepper that’s built to smash down buildings and flatten cities. Distant Chris Clark-eque keys flutter in and out of focus, giving a surreal, oddly contemplative perspective to the mass destruction caused. Side B, meanwhile, features 2 tracks from Sugar Experiment Station (Landstrumm and Tobias Schmidt) which run deep and minimal (hate using that word these days) on a electro-bass tip, with pulsing 808 bassdrums, dirty, sour synth riffs and pitched metallic textures. One for the dark rooms and huge speakers!

The soundtrack to cyborgs tearing up a huge warehouse (with extra subs)
