VA – Tone Dropout Vol. 5 [TD18005]

London label Tone Dropout return for Vol. 5 of their series of 12’s. An acid washed EP drawing from the ranks of their ever growing family, each of the four tracks celebrates the timeless appeal of the silver boxed 303. To kick things off, the He Men (AKA Oki Noki and Sween) combine the deep space sounds of Detroit techno and mind-altering acid lines of Phuture with the rubbery beats of New York deep house. Dawl opts for brain-melting analogue bass and wild machine bleeps on mutant jack-track “Asylum”, while Corporeal Face’s “Permo” is probably best described as “hardcore clonk”. Eslewhere, you’ll find two chunks of Frankie Bones style breakbeat techno heaviness that wouldn’t have sounded out of place rushing from the speakers at an early ’90s Sunrise rave.
