The Corner presents Beau Wanzer and Shawn O’Sullivan with their Civil Duty self titled hard hitting album, not for the faint at heart.
This record sees O’Sullivan inject a little more flavour than what was heard on the Interchangeable Patterns Part 1 release, and he kicks it off with a linear A1 cut that sounds like a reduced Sandwell District production boiled down to suite both the house and techno listener. The A-side’s second track pitches rapid tonal bleeps against phased out percussive snaps, while the B1 delves into deeper, Detroit inspired techno. B2 cut stays in Detroit, while adding some tribal elements to mark an EP that may be the first transmission of change in O’Sullivan’s trademark Mosaic and Bluetrain sound.
Weekend Circuit releases its first V/A series, Ground-Fault-Interrupt. Spread over 2 parts, the record’s eight tracks further showcase what the label has been become known for, a highly-focussed, well-contemplated brand with music to match. The second part includes tracks by Sleeparchive, Alderaan, P.E.A.R.L. and Coldgeist.
