Boomkat Product Review:
Dave Burraston a.k.a. Dave Noyze a.k.a. NYZ pays his subs and joins CPU’s Computer Club with the hilarious samples and unique fidelities of ALG 118B to provide a cheeky poke in the eye to more po-faced experimental electronics.
To date, Dave’s practice has persistently smeared the boundaries between sound art, braindance and eldritch electronica. Whether recording telephone cables in the outback, mechin' n0!ze with Russell Haswell, or pissing around with his peer and fellow electronic obsessive Richard D James, his approach to electronic music is clearly informed by a search for sounds that tickle his bone, and happily, yours and ours too.
ALG 118B is one of those rare, eldritch beauties that could only come from someone linked to the erstwhile Rephlex label; full of creamy dissonance, charming snatches of archaic accents from B&W films, and revelling in the quirks of hardware and the infinite realms of FX modules.
Simply, NYZ really speaks to his machines, and they speak back to him in the best way. Highly recommended if you’re into owt from AFX to Moon Wiring Club or Novo Line.
