**Superior industrial techno ruffage from Perc, backed with devastating remixes from Ancient Methods and Chris Carter!!!** It's been gratifying to see Perc getting some wider recognition of late, having long been a watchword for stylishly brutal techno among those in the know. Though his recent drops on CLR and Stroboscopic Artefacts have been well up to scratch, we can't help but feel the Londoner saves his best wares for his own Perc Trax imprint, and this new 12" does nothing to dispel that impression: 'My Head Is Slowly Exploding' is a total barnstormer, its moody, minimalist jack accented with gunshots and seriously tough, foundry-forged FX - proper techno. Berlin's Ancient Methods bring the pain with a masterful remix, adding some extra spooked, strafing dark ambience that Mick Harris and Lustmord alike would be proud of, before deploying one of their inimitably swung, Murder Boys-style war-funk rhythms to absolutely bone-crunching effect. As if that wasn't enough, the EP concludes with a huge coup in the shape of a remix from industrial godhead Chris Carter. The Throbbing Gristle man blows us away with a surprisingly "straight" techno treatment that nonetheless has such grit, depth and sophistication as to firmly set him apart from his talented young devotees. Anyone with even a passing acquaintance with Carter's work in TG, Chris & Cosey and solo will know that he understands how to hit a dancefloor where it hurts, but it's scant preparation for this deadly, disciplined and ocean-deep offering to the warehouse hordes. Effing blinding.
