The Anti Group ‎- 4 X 12 [PM27]

Following the original dissolution of legendary Sheffield industrial funk outfit Clock DVA in 1984, founder member Adi Newton struck out on his own with The Anti-Group: an experimental project in which he could explore a variety of sonic worlds with the aid of a revolving cast of likeminded Steel City stalwarts (Richard H Kirk, Stephen Mallinder, Martyn Ware and Warp co-founder Robert Gordon included). “4×12″ is a retrospective of sorts, gathering together tracks from three 12” singles (“Ha-Zulu”, “Big Sex”, “Broadcast Test”) and one mini-album (“ShT”). Musically, it veers from collage style sample patchworks and dark ambient soundscapes to rubbery industrial funk, twisted post synth-pop, EBM-influenced workouts and madcap experimental escapades.

The X Initiative is the follow-up to Adam X’s ten volume series project “The Secret Initiative”. Now one year on since unveiling the secret, Adam continues the spirit of the original project with four previously unreleased songs recorded in the end of the aughts decade. New beat grooves awash with icy atmospheres that were well ahead of their time in their moment of creation.
