Boomkat Product Review:
After the brilliant ‘Forget The 80’s’ 12” on Satamile, Decal step up with a long player on the Rotters Golf Club imprint. 12 tracks of ripped up electro biznizz released on a double album or cd. The cd features 2 extra tracks, ‘Superscum’ and ‘Freekin’ Empires’ from the 12”, but we’ll start at the top. ‘Take it over’ drops straight in with fierce electro beats and a monstrous bassline that spreads itself across the beat, while melodic almost mournful strings sneak in and out of the track, creating a dark club atmosphere. ‘Brightest Star’ meanwhile keeps the messing to a minimum and makes the beat and bass the main theme, crisp drums and a stabbing acid bass are all that are required to create a rough-ass electro cut, with moog-esque warbles that intermittently come and go adding a touch of the analogue to an otherwise upfront track, ace. The Drexciyan ‘Digital Bitch’ had some killer dark strings and detuned bass synths that bring back to mind the Molecular Enhancement release, the tougher and darker side of electro is definitely present on here and perfectly represented by ‘Digital Bitch’, darkcore. Check.
