Boomkat Product Review:
AnD & Tom Dicicco call on pals and peers for Inner Surface Music’s 2nd label compilation volume.
Sleeparchive fronts the thing with hard, pneumatic bass and splashing claps in Plates next to the bone-rolling industrial drive of Richard Oddie (Orphx) and Dave Foster (Huren) in O/H mode. Perc follows suit with a barrelling, blank-eyed beast called Hiding From Carl and Honzo wrenches the tempo down to a gristly drug chug in Dissociated Identities.
Gaja offers one his patented bangers in Noys Lambent; Takaaki Itoh locks into the intricate minimal patterns of Present; and there’s also the screeching, mentasm-bitten Spasm from Bradford’s Ontal, and a hulking noize from Sturqen to contend with.
