Boomkat Product Review:
Of his music's origins, Dalek syas: "Afrika Bambaataa sampled Kraftwerk, while we draw on the essence of Faust, or My Bloody Valentine..." pointing out the connection between the experimental tendencies of early hip hop and his own output. This fifth album is built on an especially strong foundation of dark sonic textures and avant-garde harmonic sensibilities. The politically charged intro 'Blessed Are They Whom Bash Your Children's Heads Against A Rock' sounds like a hip hop take on something from Deathprod's Morals And Dogma album, full of grainy unpleasantness and strangulated violins. Next comes the distorted, sludge metal drone of 'No Question', combining with a fearsome boom-bap and a lyrical barrage that's perfectly aligned with the punishing production - submerged into the fabric of the mix rather than riding too high. Arguably at the pinnacle of all this doom-hop onslaught is 'Street Diction', an almost gothic concoction, comprised of dissonant tones, grinding breaks and jangling chamber orchestrations. Gutter Tactics is ceaselessly confrontational - and intelligently so, serving up a singularly dark vision of modern hip hop. Highly recommended.
