December – In Advance of the Broken Arm [A14001]

Pronounced Ay One Four, the A14 label is a new offshoot of Blackest Ever Black dedicated to issuing everything from “serpentine breakbeat reductions to straight-up terminator trax” in the 12″ format. The debut release comes from December, the recently adopted alias of Parisian producer Tomas More whose earlier material for Correspondant and Items & Things is far removed from the music he now makes. If you picked up the December tape for Where To Now? issued back in August you should have an idea of the abstract textures More now deals in, and there’s something a bit Beau Wanzer about the wave-indebted techno of lead track “In Advance Of The Broken Arm”. Proceedings get a bit more bugged out on the flip with “Collapse” accurately summed up as “khat-crazed small hours death-dub” by the label.
