AS LONGITUDE

After pledging a long term commitment to cutting edge electronics through the second volume of their "Danzas Electricas" compilation, Macadam Mambo offer more razor-sharp music from the fringes of clubland, courtesy of Berlin duo As Longitude. The collaborative partnership of Eva Geist and Laura ODL (also known as Ondula), As Longitude made waves with a brilliant debut on Knekelhuis and show-stealing contribution ot the "Eine Welt Vol.1" compilation. Now they plug straight into the mainframe once again to hold some sort of bizarre synth seance for all the freaks on the floor - future primitive in the most ritualistic way, this is slow-mo cyberpunk for the druid class.
Setting up their place of power in the middle of the neon swamp, Eva and Laura embrace radioactive gurgles, mechanised cicadas and a fading shortwave signal, enhancing the otherworldly effect with an eerie lead line and churning bass while the tribal rhythm lollops on. Berlin frontman and songwriter Paul Arambula's twisted vocal contribution reveals the duo’s wavy tendency in an unexpected song-form, translating the track into an opiated nonsense poem for all the eyeball lickers. Heading deeper into the heart of the ceremony, "Na Numbers" sees the duo summon Simone's haunting saxophone, open a portal to the black ark and lose themselves in a bizarre Bermuda Triangle between dub, no wave and psychedelic synth-funk. Sway through "I Thought It Was Summer" and your transformation will be complete. The buzzing bassline, delay-riddled synth ragas and hypnotic beat pinning you down, spinning you out and turning you into your animal persona.


STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Since Macadam Mambo turned their back on the edit industry (arguably a shame given their track record), the quality, consistency and insanity of their release has increased tenfold. This latest 12" sees Eva Geist and Laura ODL hold a synth seance in the neon swamp, laying out the slow and low weirdshit for the eyeball licking acolytes.
