Boomkat Product Review:
**Another one of those "where the f*ck did that come from" U.S. pressings - an absolutely killer LP of non-linear and developed Techno modifications somewhere between Powell, Byetone and Vatican Shadow. Edition of 100 hand-stamped white labels housed in screen-printed jacket. Includes colour insert** Prostitutes is the alias used by James Donadio of Cleveland, United States, for his murky, physically affective explorations of post-Techno and synth noise. 'Psychedelic Black' is the first release via his StabUDown label (he's got a way with words, this guy) and slots his grotty sound next to the likes of Metasplice, Container or KPLR in the world of American noise/techno which is really taking our fancy of late. Track-to-track it oscillates between dryly motorik pulses and wormholing electronics with linear logic and oddly alluring elegance. His constructions are often dense, but never cluttered, handled with a steady nerve and economical arrangements prone to unforeseen twists and turns which have our interest locked down. Personal highlights have to be the swaggering, Powell-esque roller 'Shaking Single Engined Planes', the sumptuous synth scaper 'Rogue Elephants' or the cracked cyberdubpunk ace 'Flipped Pieces Of Coin'. This is just a must for any of you who have enjoyed releases by the likes of Powell, Byetone, Vatican Shadow, Black Rain, Pete Swanson etc - and in a beautiful sleeve to boot.
