Shipwrec proudly present one of the pioneers of Dutch electronics, Vincent Koreman. Under the mask of Drvg Cvltvre brutish 303 soaked anger is being doled out. An Acid washed Industrial wrath comes in the form of American Psychosis [Part one]. “Acid Flash” sees a new collaboration with Bournmouth’s Chris Moss Acid for a burning piece of aggression. Violent knob squawk is further punished by bullying beats, cruel claps and some late night horror. “I’ll Wear Your Face On A Chain” has the same red mist behind the eyes. Shrill 303 chords run into abrasive drums with darkened vocals prophesising pain.
‘How You Say’ is the new single from Factory Floor. This third 12″ contains new versions, both from Bookworms aka Nik Dawson, who turned in 2 new versions that were so good, we had no choice but to put them both out.
Another mysterious release from the Take The Elevator camp. Once again no info just mechanical rhythms, dry acidic synths and weird deathly vocals.
Fans of L.I.E.S. couldn’t have failed to notice the Russian Torrent Versions label, a highly limited vinyl-only operation that shares many artists with Ron Morelli’s imprint. While we’ve yet to prove a direct link between the two labels, the latest piece of compelling evidence comes in the shape of this L.I.E.S White Label from NGLY, an anonymous artist who recently debuted on the Russian Torrent Versions label. Fans of dank basement techno will be in their element with this record, with “Service Cost HH2” offering a muddy jack track featuring an uncommonly melodic touch, but “Some Relationships” offers a track in more of a submerged experimental hip hop mould. On the flip, “Speechless Tape” is a dark 303-led track whose copious reverb and spoken word vocal sample puts it somewhere between classic synthwave and acid, while “I Don’t HAve A Soul” harks back to classic Chi house sounds, albeit glimpsed through that gauzy L.I.E.S. filter.
