Boomkat Product Review:
Sähkö’s compilation tekkerz are on point again with a strange bunch of techno screwballs, cranky downbeats, auction MCs, tabla turn ups, and post-industrial soundscapes.
Leading down the path from 2022’s ‘Les Interlocuteurs Fictifs’ and ‘7Ai9’ confections, Tommi Grönlund’s label lasso “contemporary electronic sounds by parallel thinking agents from Europe and US”, introducing artists new to us, beside contemporary freaks and well established pioneers.
‘Circe Noire’ opens with Egg Meat’s odd transition from spoken word and synth noise to warped garage-techno in ‘Milton/Earth (Massive Bereavement Mix)’, and closes with a washed out shoegaze guitar scape by Portuguese auteur Rafael Toral. The sequencing logic in between plays out like a cryptic mixtape for a pal, encompassing Umfang on a glum downbeat with ‘Baby Blue (Drone Edit)’; the perplexing juxtaposition of low end keys and a motor mouthed auctioneer in ‘Doppelgänger Varaitions’; a superb escapade for tabla and gamelan by TTT alum Nuke Watch; the hypnagogic, subtropical grog of Georgia’s ‘Mekael’; and the escalating howl of Ana Fosca’s warehouse noise piece ‘ANIMA (Novus)’.
