Logos and Zuli pull Pelican Company’s synth soundscapes into puckered dub techno and jagged rhythmic noise mutations for Peder Mannerfelt’s label
Chasing the wayward leads of the label boss and his roster of techno panel-beaters such as Carbon 96 and Sissel Wincent, the duo of Johan Antoni & Henrik Johansson (aka Vertical Form’s massively f underrated Smyglyssna) yield their synth scapes to radical treatments from two of experimental dance music’s most distinctive figures.
In the mould of his ‘North Vol.1’ tape and turns with DB1 as Rvshes, Logos reduces and pinches ‘Alvaret’ into a flickering pulse rent with dub chord detonations and spectral interference, before revealing the source material in its final minute. For stark contrast, UIQ MVP Zuli goes raggo with ‘Lowlife Hi-Tech Occult’, schizzily soscillating bouts of barbed rhythmic noise with shards of bright white light synths that surely flashback to Logos’ solo work and in The Sprawl.
