Boomkat Product Review:
Cambridge-based box buster Nochexxx resurfaces with another crafty salvo of wronged up electronics for Chloe Frieda’s Alien Jams label.
From his early forages on RAMP and Werk Discs to his wildly-underrated 2015 album for Type, we’ve always had a soft spot for Dave Henson’s NOCHEXXX output. He’s back at his best, instigating sonic warfare on this new Planet Bangs LP for Chloe Frieda’s ever-impressive Alien Jams platform. Commencing in quite stark fashion with the first of two homages to South London borough Lewisham, Henson pulls you on a slow trudge through the murky trenches amidst a barrage of percussive fire, before landing on a typically NOCHEXXXian groove with the low-slung, gristly throb of Vision Feet.
Metawitch is NOCHEXXX at his confounding best, distracting you with some field-recorded clops in the Cambridge countryside before launching off down a wormhole of acid-drenched free party madness. Stick Shift further outlines the post-apocalyptic vista that shapes Planet Bangs, conjuring up a scratchy, unsettling seven minutes of loop techno that would have put the jitters on Regis. Lewisham doesn’t sound any less desolate on Pt II, a messy, weightless assemblage of low frequency sub blasts, freeform percussive slices and modulated delirium. The sprint for the finishing line is soundtracked by the dank Drexciyan thrust of Overhound.
