Boomkat Product Review:
Exceptional industrial Techno movements from the overse'er of Berlin's legendary Zhark Recordings.
On his first excursion since the bleak, beatless expanse of 'Porto Ronco' for The Death Of Rave, Kareem crosses boundaries between Gothic Industrial and the kind of Wild Pitch-styled house grooves which infected his formative club experience in the early-mid '90s.
Working circa 120bpm or slower, four tracks explore dank, sleazy strains of industrialised house swing rolling between T++ style aqua-tech on 'The Sky Is Gone But You Are Still Here', to the oxidised iron clangour of 'Wildpitch, I Think I Loved You'. B-side cuts deeper with the throbbing bassdrum massage and opiated atmospheres of 'Divine Hunger', and 'La Iguana' checks out on sub-bass-driven reduction of drily funked up breakbeat techno. A massive recommendation to fans of T++/Dynamo, Silent Servant, CUB, Shifted.
