Boomkat Product Review:
Devilish technoid chicanery from S S S S, the sibilant simulant realised by Switerland’s Samuel Savenberg for Milan’s ‘core crew at Haunter Records
Veering into bombed out terrain somewhere between Croww’s hardcaw dissections and The Sprawl’s modular convulsions, and with the dramatic grasp of Rabit, the ‘Absence EP’ speaks to a bleeding edge flux of abstracted hard dance musick contexts and textures.
Since his debut couplet for Haunter, ‘Administration of Fear’  and ‘Autopoiesis’ , S S S S has released straighter industrial clangers for Swiss labels Hallow Ground and Lux Rec. But, with ‘Absence’ he returns to the broader remit of his early work, spending the A-side’s gettign right under the skin with invasive, nanoscopic precision in the tense sound design of ‘It Comes In Waves’, before committing muderous flashcore and splintered dembow breaks in ‘Stripped’, then following his gulliest hunch into the freeform attack of ‘This Terrible Virtue of Forgiveness’ and the bombed-out shivers of the title track, while Gil brings up the rear with the cyber-dembow re-swivel of ‘This Terrible Virtue of Forgiveness.’
