Boomkat Product Review:
Circuit-mangled crunch and sodden emo electronics by the Welsh pioneers of radical noise techno
Veteran survivors of a scene that has mutated between speedcore, noise, breakcore, and industrial electronics, the Healy brothers aka Somatic Responses show no sign of letting up on their livewire hardware sound for Ireland’s (nearly) equally long-running Acroplane. Hailing from South Wales’ industrial heartlands, the SR siblings’ music reflects a sort of mucky-hands-on, artisanal approach to their craft, with circuit-bent boxes hot-wired into rambunctious rhythms and a mix of atonal and emosh arrangements.
‘Doomsday Conduit’ carries the energy of original ‘90s free-party techno rave into 2023, veering from the rusted tang of their Autechrian melody and lurch in ‘Other Destinations’, to panel-beaten AFXian drill ’n bass in ‘Photon Barrage’ and the breakcore ballistics of the title tune, before wrangling wild offbeat electro-breaks in ‘The Fault Inside Us’ and melodramatic ‘Slewed Diffusion’, and snapping back to acid electro in ‘2Hlec’ and ‘Imagined Darkness (Elektro Mix)’, with a scything signature piece of distressed rave signals in ‘Tec Cymru’.
