New Zealand based EBM auteur Body Beat Ritual makes his debut on Bergerac with an incendiary EP of full throttle intense dark wave bangers.
Growing up in North West England immersed in hardcore punk and rave culture led to musical experiments and Body Beat Ritual is his unique splicing of both aesthetics.
Using a combination of hardware, audio samples and midi sequencing, Body Beat Ritual reclaims the moment when underground musicians in Manchester, Chicago and Ghent put down their guitars and picked up drum machines and sequencers bringing the intensity, rawness and aggression of the band environment to the dancefloor. "Mortal Sin" is a certified smasher. Absolute dancefloor decimation whenever it's played out. No more description necessary. "No Mercy" evokes the Lost Boys vibe with an equally high octane raw workout. Trent Reznor meets Jeff Mills at a DAF gig on a flatliner. The EP closes with "Body Politics" which lowers the tempo to a chuggier zone, with an ode to female empowerment which keeps up that Body Beat pressure and intensity. 


Sil says: It is all in the title, amigos. This is hardcore body workout that could perfectly be used in military conditioning and training! Uncompromisingly fast, strident at times but dead effective techno here. Your neighbours will not appreciate it though.

"Feel My Tears" is a warehouse burner on many levels. Perfect for those summer evenings of drug loneliness. "Courting" is a big room post-post-dustep UK garage-house stomper with a very loud snare drum. The last track on the record "How We Do" is a strange jazz techno house hybrid, taken from the Early Years album and now available on vinyl due to popular demand.
