About this item

The second release on Passive Aggressive Tapes is a compilation of the year's hottest trance anth... Erm, I mean, the return of Transpire, Bliss (the one that remixed for Denkitribe), C.T.A.N, and a former member of The New Post Colonials. Transpire experiment with techno which descends into chaotic drones on "Conscious Headshot". The two Bliss tunes explore dark minimalism with tinges of hope for something brighter. Hyrax delivers a hard hitting chainsaw-to-the-soul piece of noise music. The soothing, reverb-coated vocals and guitar on "Standard Carousel" drive you into the abstract world of Circa Cologne. And last but not least, C.D.T.M blur the genre lines with a dark piece of experimental techno which evaporates into deep drones, sour synths and choppy breaks.


Matt says: Excellent DIY tape comp of some hi-end audio abuse. Combined with ghosts of warehouse parties from the past, this is brilliant post-rave music, sitting beside labels like Death Of Rave and Blackest Ever Black. Great stuff.
