Boomkat Product Review:
Brain-gargling, screwy hooligan computer music by the brilliantly uncompromising EVOL, making 20 years of work with their umpteenth for Superpang
As the title implies, ‘Slump Trax’ tends toward a decelerated, gouched style of acid mischief across its hour long breadth. Basic blocks of 303 taffy are extruded at slower paces and twisted into gunky gobs and knots, giving the user more time to really get into their sheer textures and get the tastebuds salivating. For the electronic music connoisseur it’s like a 17-course taster menu of experimental acid gourmet, each plating up a semi-live/semi-generative organism that wriggles and attempts to avoid noumenal knives and forks under one’s nose.
The acrid gunk of ‘Ill Will’ leave tongues lolling, and ‘Runny Ryan’ sounds like an attempt to crawl back up the gullet after ingestion.
