Karim Maas debuts in commanding style on UVB-76 Music, backed with a sick Huren remix
A new vent for Ruffhouse’s Tom Cooper, the Karim Maas sound operates shades away from Ruffhouse’s D&B missiles, edging a style of rolling D&B that’s equally porous to influence from noise and industrial techno.
The rolling steppers juggernaut ‘c_c_e_d’ gives a solid footing for subsequent departures into crushing sci-fi sound design on ‘Lizzard King’ and an obliterated remix of the dread rave scenes in ‘Cassette_A’ by industrial techno pioneer, Dave Foster a.k.a. Huren a.k.a. Teste.
Deeper in, ‘Zombissim’ works a murkier rut of pendulous grey area techno grit echoing the dread sentiments of Pessimist, and ‘Civilize’ takes that momentum to a logical conclusion with brute, bone rattling force.
