Boomkat Product Review:
Moon Wiring Club makes his vinyl rounds for 2015 with a uniquely irreverent nod to classic breakbeat techno and furtive, sartorially-sussed, Jacobean gatherings over two sides of Why Does My House Make Creaking Noises? - which may be alternately known as Musicke for Plotting in Secret Rooms or The Clandestine Thought Forms of a Well Dressed Ghost.
Like the soundtrack to a supremely odd first-person computer game experience, or a spectral call to dance, MWC’s self-described Jacobean Electronic Musicke is remarkably unlike anything else out there yet, compared with his previous releases, its 120-130bpm framework now makes his sound uncannily compatible with a broad range of other styles.
Whether doffing a cap to early Photek in Cobwebby Whodunit and the shape-shifting Crafty and Familiar or doing Stakker-style acid mixed with spooky fairground organs in Apprehended Deeplier, this may well be the most unsettling and infectious MWC episode so far.
It’s Carl Craig-meets-ITV 3 at 5am, Landcruising across time and space fuelled on mushies thru clandestine meetings in wood-panelled rooms, hatching deals about the new world and succumbing to itchy bouts of St. Vitus-style dancefloor voodoo, all connected by the mould-like threads of curious, probing melody.
