Boomkat Product Review:
Jan Grebenstein grinds out no wave techno swag under the Geza aegis for Shifted’s AVIAN
Concentrated, minimalist, and textured to taste in Avian’s in-house style, ‘Dialoge 1’ sees Grebenstein on six bunkered drills, toiling rusted percussion and wheezing drones into zombie march dances. There’s a grimacing, offset funk to proceedings that keeps it the right side of grinding, with results almost recalling early Powell in the first, and like an arid Regis rhythm track on the 2nd, with the 3rd hewing close to Shifted’s signature style, and the 5th reducing it to a murky lurch, with some grotty swang for your gruds in the 6th part. Good stuff.
