GENERAL LUDD

Rare Earth Metal EP

TEN THOUSAND YEN

Format_dot_vinyl12" // £7.99

TECHNO / HOUSE

Cat. Number: TTY016

Percussive house tricks from General Ludd, who was known as Dam Mantle before enlisting in the house army with releases for Clan Destine, Mister Saturday Night Records and Autonomous Africa. 'Wigu Hill' jerks out like Soundhack meets Dego; 'Molycorps Mountain Pass' deals in flanging metallic tribalism; 'Garimpos' locks down to a Diskant-like loop-off; 'Prisoners Dilemna' gets down liek a Bookworms bewt with taut layers of writhing, driving drum patterns.

On the flip, local NYC cat and Razor 'N Tape boss JKriv entwines the original guitar lick with squelchy boogie bass synth for a naughty fructose buzz.

"Early in 2014, Copenhagen’s Kenneth Bager asked Ruf Dug if he would make an album for his acclaimed Balearic imprint Music For Dreams. That summer, Ruf Dug headed off to spend three months on the island of Guadeloupe in the French Caribbean. Seizing the opportunity to live out his own Compass Point fantasy, he put together a portable studio that would fit into a suitcase - two half-rack synthesizers, a couple of effects units, his laptop and a 4-track cassette recorder. He set up the studio in the spare bedroom in a rented villa and spent the next 12 weeks watching the sun set and making the album. … Read more
