Boomkat Product Review:
With fingers in many pies, Werk have been responsible for some of the most funked up and demented parties in the chic surroundings of London and Madrid and have, in the procees, carefully selected an array of unkown talent with which to launch their first assalut on your record buying senses. This is seriously inspired, original sh*t - none of your IDM by numbers fixit electronic dirge or copyist crunchadelic shenanigans - this is where it's at right now. Mixing a blend of influences from London grimey business through to Detroit beat-driven technoid re-constructions, electroid mayhem, nervously modified break mashups and padded bass-stab devastation - marvel at the wondrous cut-ups of Actress (the sound of Robocop's anaerobic workout routine on crack), Byte Stripes (a media revolution via the medium of 10/8 jungle - killerstyles), Ben Codec (algorhythms on toast and ash-tray muesli bezerkerisms), Cut Out (genetically modified fidget-hop), Mr. Lizard (made from a sample patch based on the contours of Noel Edmonds' mullet!) and Format.K (tonic for the anguish of a thousand ecstasy-ravaged bird-brains) - Werk just have it all. A record with a beginning, middle, an end and even a nervous breakdown - we guarantee you'll be hearing a LOT more from this crew and their ill- behaved personnel, expect to be hassling us endlessly for a copy in a few months time if you don't snap it up now. Limited copies only and a wake-up call to all new labels out there doing it lazy styles - you just have to Werk harder. Killer.
