Boomkat Product Review:
PAN’s vinyl-only club weapon series pits E-Saggila and Exploited Body in a duel of industrialised dembow, slow-slamming tech, and martial bone rattlers. No digital, limited edition of 300 stamped white labels.
In hot pursuit of their 2019 split sessions by Slikback / Soda Plains, M.E.S.H./Tsuzing, and Toxe/Crystalmess, this one comes hungry for the reopened clubs with two parts brooding, concentrated pressure, to two parts of gnashing attack set to sever limbs and mind.
Toronto's Rita Mikhael aka E-Saggila dispenses her follow-up to a handful of albums for Opal Tapes, Hospital Productions and Northern Electronics with a scowling one-two; holding a deadly line of whirring dembow rhythms hackled with junglist shrapnel in ‘Cluebeat’, before laying the smackdown with the slow darkroom techno thrust of ’83C’ - both bound to do damage in right situations.
Helsinki’s Noah Kin, aka Exploited Body leads on from shots on Posh Isolation and Northern Electronics with the all out rail-gunning machine rhythm of ‘Alive, Expensive & Damaged’, before ramping the drama with radioactive synths and scudding drums in ’Nothing Persona’.
sleep n weep babes.
