Boomkat Product Review:
One half of Kryptic Minds and founder of Osiris Music Simon Shreeve (aka Mønic) dives further into the darkness on this distorted, bass-heavy stepper. One 4 fans of Sleeparchive, Monolake, Forest Drive West.
Shreeve has been engineering sub-heavy material for years, but came into his own on the Downwards-cosigned "Trawler Tapes" set, that explored grubby electro-acoustic sounds and pitch-black ambience. On 'Answer Your Conscience' he splits the difference, settling into a half-step crawl but blessing the beat with atmospheres that take us right into a malfunctioning military laboratory.
Well-placed echo'd blips drive the action, while Shreeve purposefully lets an a near dembow rhythm emerge from metallic cuts and electrical fuzz. Gruesome shit - properly reminds us of DJ Scud and I:Sound's blindingly underrated Wasteland material, and that's about the highest praise as we can give.
