Boomkat Product Review:
Another huge 12” from STL, this time seemingly dedicated to legendary Kranky droner Dave Pearce. That may or may not be true, but what we do know is that Stephan Laubner’s crushed 4/4 variations are addictively weird, combining the effortless grit of early 80s post punk with the swaying groove of contemporary Berlin techno. A good comparison might be recent Spectrum Spools/Public Information graduate No UFOs as both artists seem to share a passion for the crunchier side of life. By the time we reach ‘Where Have You Gone’ and its Kaman Leung-style bit-reduced mutant hip hop we’re already sold – well good.
