Boomkat Product Review:
Having founded Zhark Recordings in Berlin over 8 years ago, label head-honcho Kareem has deemed the time right to unleash his darkest material yet 'Noctocromas'. Puffed full of caliginous aural clouds, 'Noctocromas' can at first seem wilfully unpenetratable as the first two tracks ('Doom' and 'HaCks 1') blur past in a steely mask of electronic drone. Just when you're thinking it's a beatless headmash throughout, 'HaCks 3' introduces a heartbeat rhythm of soulless depth that drags you in to the aural tar ever deeper, with the violent pounding remorselessly drilling you against the wall. Bleeding into one another, the individual pieces soon become one turbulent beast, as the granite beats begin to take their toll on the surrounding structures. Very dark and awfully proud of it.
