Boomkat Product Review:
Heavy 12” transmission on Raster Noton from Jens Messel following his mighty Pong LP of last year – and that album’s ascetic, decidedly North European response to dubstep’s low end theories. Though Tweek is a homage to the perennially anxious, hyperactive South Park character Tweek Tweak (honestly), the music is anything but jittery – rather it’s a cool, controlled bass offensive, admittedly shot through with the requisite paranoia. The icily delayed drums, pinched chords and oscillating subs suggest Digital Mystikz re-tooled to soundtrack Tarkovsky’s Stalker, while the eerie synths and spurts of noise bring to mind late 80s industrial and Senking’s own noirish masterpiece List. Serious sh*t for those who know, cut nice and loud with DJs and skankers in mind.
