About this item
More emissions land from Radioactive Man’s sessions at Curve Pusher studios on his Asking For Trouble label. This time it features a new collaboration with Ara-u, a friend and a figure whose heritage lies in the rave community of 90s Venezuela. Started in Hackney and finished in Hastings, on "Plastic Attack" the pair present a four track selection of raw analogue machine funk from the bunker for the warehouse floor.
"Datatheft" kicks us off with malevolent undertones across a mechanized superstructure; if the machines are indeed taking over their dark intentions are revealed through the grimy gears and rusty pistons firing off this menace.
"Failure To Communicate" is pure Keith Tenniswood brilliance; as a anthemic 303 decorates a skeletal but snappy broken beat. Much like "Daytime Robbery" which sees the producers squashed, sub-woofer tickling 303 lines growl over another minimalist electro wobble.
Finally "The Last Waltz" carries on like a buzzy UR number; a rabid sawtooth cutting through a frenetic electro hybrid beat. Add a few technoid stabs here and there and you've got yourself a sure fire body popper.
Matt says: One of my favourite producers joins forces with a Venezualian rave vet for a jam packed EP of mechanized mayhem.
