Boomkat Product Review:
One of 2018’s most reliable labels, UVB-76 Music close the year with a killer quartet of industrial/D&B/techno apparitions by Karim Maas, Pessimist, Overlook and Talker
Titled in tribute to the seminal ‘70s sci-fi conjured by Nigel Kneale for the BBC, The Stone Tapes unleashes dark forces in all four parts.
Kicking off with the trampling, lunky pressure and sweltering spectral noise of ‘Removal Of DECC’ by Karim Maas, it finds Pessimist investigating haunted dancehall vibes with the grungy acidic bogle of ‘Ultranova’, while Overlook follows suit with the depth-charge halfstep bone-rattler ‘Purr’, and Chicago’s Talker twat out the tense industrial techno rolige of ‘Cross Purposes’.
There’s definitely something in the Bristol waters…
