Boomkat Product Review:
The third in Low Jack’s much sought-after Les disques de la Bretagne 12” series features the first new material from Antinote co-founder Iueke in years, following a series of archival releases and pair of brilliantly unhinged mixtapes for the DDS label. For this one he opts for a complex and hard-hitting crackpot dancefloor style, something like a squahed take on T++, Dynamo,, Autechre, Gescom...
The last original productions we heard from the Antinote co-founder was on a series of archival 12”s for his label issued between 2012 and 2015, but Champion features his first new recordings in perhaps over a decade and, true to form, they’re not at all what we were expecting.
Champion (Version) deploys a a super rugged swing and recursive digital noise coming off like T++ and Gescom programming daggering robots, while Zonck brilliantly recalls Autechre's remix of Lexis’ Hypnotise - all achromatic, dense, percussive madness that also recalls T++, or more specifically, his Dynamo gear.
Dem A Burning is more glacial and spacious, swilling the dance with caustic acid noise and sloshing subbass in deadly, futurist style recalling Timeblind's much overlooked but completely ageless Rastabomba session, before Polxat expends his restless energy in a properly Autechrian madness.
