Boomkat Product Review:
Regis, William Bennett (Whitehouse/Cut Hands) and Kevin Drumm set about the Downwards boss's 'Chua Rave' and 'Harshing' cuts taken from a 5" vinyl (LINO 51). Regis goes in first with a jagged, loopy rebuild of 'Chua Rave' revolving around a signature, numb hook crawling with insectoid, stereo-swarming textures and swung round a killer metallic clap. William Bennett meanwhile is back to his old tricks, refrying the same cut in a sweltering headfuck of disembowelled modular madness, but the star of the show is undoubtedly Kevin Drumm's "GODDAMNIT!! 1,2,3" Remix. To 'Harshing' he applies cryptic, haptic processing, resulting a deeply rewarding noise punishment which subsides to cosmic splutter and elegiac microtonal drones reminding of his seminal 'Imperial Distortion' works. So damn good.
