Boomkat Product Review:
L.I.E.S. wrap up all three volumes of Tsuzing’s keenly sought-after ‘A Name Out of Place’ sessions for the baying crowd
Volume 1 came out in 2014 and introduced Tzusing to the rave at large with a critical balance of EBM and alter-techno vibes ranging from the clenched EBM marches of ‘1976’ and ‘Axis of Revision’, thru the off-kilter strut and blank-eyed droens of ‘ISMS (TNXILS)’, and the panting pressure of ‘No Primordial State’.
The hugely in-demand 2nd volume came out in 2015 and now trades for twice the price of this set on the 2nd hand market. It’s unmissable for good reasons including the muscular funk of ‘4 Floors of Whores’, the raucous, dissonant klangggg of ‘Frankincense And Myrrh’ and a gnashing beast named ‘O.D.D.’.
Pt. III came out in 2016 and includes one of our favourite Tzusing aces in the frazzled breakbeat bomb ‘Face of Electric’ (which works best pitched +4 or more for us), along with the swampy acid of ‘Emotional Eater’ and the gargling industrialism ‘R’.
