The machines maniacs Bologna based duo FLML returns to Alley Version with “Wired Cruel Run”, a totally DIY 6-tracker EP of technoid experiments, drony patterns, wachy funks, inspired by the obscure side of Chicago jack-beats, early Industrial music, J.G. Ballard’s novels, low-budget VHS era horror movies. All tracks are recorded analogically live on reel to reel.
Jamal Moss, Takeshi Kouzuki, FLML and Mituo Shiomi take part in “Tracks From The Alley Vol. II”, a Various Artists four-tracker E.P. which follows the imprint of the previous release of the Bologna based underground music label Alley Version. Here the jackin’ and acid house/techno sonic palette is diverted in a raw, immersive and screwy signature. Rough vibes for freaky minds.
Takeshi Kouzuki returns to Alley Version label for sharing with the brothera duo FLML, the split mini-LP “Tracks From The Alley”. Takeshi Kouzuki keeps crossing old school house with his recognizable classy signature. The warm but hitting acid of “福”, opens the Takeshi Kouzuki’s side, while in the second track “1986” deep-and-dark synthetic magic atmospheres are driven by the beating of the twins TR707 and TR727 drum machines. “Yellowacid” burns in its acid-jackin’ madness. Opening FLML’s side “Hot Spread” is obscure jackin’ techno mechanical psychedelia, the following “Jack That Strings” is a pure raw windy city deep‘n’acid track. In the closing “Does Mean It’s You” a freaky FM synth melody is driven by the pulsing of liquid and creepy analog synths and drums, while an 8-bit sampled Andy Warhol’s speaking fragment marks the space, until dies in a delay feedback.
