CERBERUS FUTURE TECHNOLOGIES

Ste Spandex

The Video Collection


    MCR's enigmatic hardware molester returns on his own label, Cerberus Future Technologies for a brand new album of mutant discoid experiments, frazzled cosmic techno and tryptamine riding casette jams. Conjured up over the last five years through sonic rituals and spellbound sessions at both The Brown House and The Boneyard, it includes guest vocals by Crispy Duck and Sarah Bates. It catches Spandex at the peak of his game, effortlessly drifting through dimensions and styles, piloted by a vast array of analogue synthesizers and classic drum box rhythms. Freeform in nature, but packing serious punch, it instantly transports us to smoke filled clubs with darting red lights and a nicely saturated rig. Genres, styles and tempos get blended and merged as Spandex takes us through the stars, his stylish production, succinct aesthetic and unrelenting throb the only constant as we plunge further and further to event horizon. One of the most unique and captivating producers out there at the moment folks, it's an honour to have him in our fair city and seeing him hit this long-running purple patch. With vinyl releases imminent grab this fully realized artist expression, released via cassette and full quality download; sure to be a celebrated addition to the archives of leftfield dance music from the North of England. T I P!

    Cerberus Future Technologies : Frequency Adjustments Vol. 4

      More storming cracked space techno from maison Spandex on volume 4 of the transcendental Frequency Adjustments series. Blistering circuit-bent beats and dystopian production. Chugging high-passed kicks, sky-cracking snare hits, and screaming resonant bass. These are a crew to be reckoned with, and as ever, despite the many artists on show here, they all work together like a perfect mob of hardware-wired space sentries. Mind-blowing and eye-opening otherworldly dance.

      Licking Mirrors

      Psychic G Shit

        Hardware demon Ste Spandex returns with one of his infamous Cerberus Future Technologies units. This time it's Levenshume crew, Licking Mirrors on the attack - made up of Crispy Duck & Govinda Chugdream on vocals and guest featuring Luke O'Reilly and Anturio. Licking Mirrors make psychotropic industrial disco-punk, with a live, one-take ethos and more lysergic elements than your standard patch of Amazon rainforest. Like if !!! and LCD Soundsystem had an ayahuasca ceremony with Ron Hardy orchestrating events behind a holographic field. Spandex's dazzling array of hardware is the centre piece, with his trademark chunky drums ricocheting all over the shop as heavily manipulated vocals ride through the murk like a crazed, space-age version of Mark E Smith. Synths buzz within an inch of their tortured life as all these aural fractals are somehow squeezed onto a C90 tape, further enhancing the out-there nature of the beast as frequencies are lost in harmonic resonance, analogue distortion and overloaded headroom. It's a thoroughly invigorating trip folks, just make sure you strap in before you take off. Highly recommended. 

        As usual, for soundclicks visit Cereberus Future Technologies bandcamp.

        Cerberus Future Technologies: Frequency Adjustments Vol. 3

          More crazed sonic manipulations from the Cerberus Camp. The usual Levenshume tekno hippees all present and correct (Montauk Boys, Skanky Magic, Kindred Dicks and Licking Mirrors - all produced by head wizard Ste Spandex), plus we get some new talent, Nova & The Prophet 600, sniffed out by Spandex's nose for top zest. Cerberus converts should know the drill by now - manic, hardware driven space techno, throbbing and spewing with buzzing Organite-fuelled 5D magic. "Red Lights" and "Two Dollar Pistol" giving us a clear idea of what's to come from the offset - schizophrenic arpeggiator abuse, rampant filter swirls and torn-through-the-fabric-of-space audio editing; insane Martian music for fans of Jamal Moss, Ron Hardy, Jeff Mills, Steve Poindextor and hardware freakz throughout the cosmos. As well as the aforementioned mentioned tracks, "Acceptable Levels Of Distortion" and "Boys V.2" should also find heavy rotation in the club, uptempo funky tek that rides on a rainbow road and glugs poppers for breakfast. One of the most truly unique, instantly identifiable sounds to emerge from our city in recent years this stuff folks. You know when it's a Spandex production within the first arse-cheek loosening bars. Immense stuff; grab a piece of Northern English Dance Music Heritage before it's too late.

            Matt says: The Cerberus space ship rockets onwards! This stupendously good star cruiser is like Manuel Gottsching or Ash Ra beamed deep, deep into a wormhole and coming out sometime close the very end of the known current universe. You know how the new Hubble is gonna show you light from the very beginning of time, well this is the sound vibrations transmitted at the very END of time and captured now, without any red shift. Get ya head 'round that pop pickers.

            Montauk Boys

            The Golden Horse Of 6037

              Captured from top secret time travel interference pattern experiments, the audio has been magnetically restored to ferric tape from its original crystal recording format. Alongside the crystal recording devices and other psionic broadcasting weapons we found was a small white slip of card that read...

              'In the year 6037 thousands of blond Montauk boys (teenagers, not children) were sent to see a city in ruins There was a golden horse statue with a clock in its belly in the middle of the town square. Weird inscriptions were written on the golden horse statue that the Montauk boys were suppose to view. Fact is this appears to be a training exercise.'

              Cerberus Future Technologies continues to be the most important underground transmission in Manchester with the freebased lysegia of the Montauk Boys. Hallucinatory machine-dirg taken to the very extremes of our known universe, and beamed back to Earth through a series of red-shift interceptors and plasmionic radio devices. If Ron Hardy and Jamal Moss are currently occupying a distance space station, and are playing back2back in a fog of sherm stick haze and amphetamine soaked bliss then this is what the alien dancers are hearing on't dancefloor. Ste Spandex and friends have not only uncovered a brand new musical form, contextually keeping to Manchester's spirit of pushing things in sonically brand new directions, but they've housed the whole sound in a concept and art form so real and impacting that it feels like it's the start of a whole new cult movement. Possibly the freshest thing in our fine city right now. Highly recommended.

              Cerberus Future Technologies

              Frequency Adjustments Vol. 2

                'Post apocalyptical, auditory machine-dirge signalling the shift in solar winds and featuring, amongst others Manchester finest hardware mangler, Ste Spandex. Cerberus Future Technologies is a new label featuring cosmic vibrations, interstellar energy and Orgonite-fuelled sonic communications beamed straight outta Levenshulme, MCR.' This, their second compilation (after the first sold out in days) is another treasure of a release. The cassette tape features 17 tracks from the galactic creative, mixed via analogue wizardry by starship commander Ste Spandex. Alongside this, purchase of the tape allows digital downloads to some of the tracks featured on the cassette as individual files - perfect for those DJs wishing to harness Cerberus' alien voodoo in their DJ sets. The second volume of this essential series hints at a more dancefloor focussed, galactically tuned set; a stark contrast to the bleak, war-torn futurescapes that volume 1 conjured up. Its still completely hardware driven, and pumps and undulates as the crew only just maintain control of their powerful machines. Montauk Boy's "SBD" is an interstellar cruiser of the highest order, flying through the cosmos on a technicoloured highway straight outta F-Zero. Spandex's high octane drum workout, "Now Move Your Feet" should whip up any floor into a salivating frenzy; looping up percussion artefacts into oblivion while drawing us through a grainy, saturated tape fug. Excellent stuff; while another solo effort, "We're All Friends Here" sends us plummeting down a machine-elf occupied wormhole straight into technoid 5D; chattering gremlins and jewelled basketballs our only company. Again, the tape is mixed differently to the digital album, taking us on a more DJ-inspired journey through the tracks but as with the previous release - you get digital streams of the tape too, alongside some of the individual tracks, so you get plenty of angles to attack the tracks! Another amazing collection of music presented in a well thought-out format, the tape suiting the red-hot analogue vibrations much of the firm utilize. Highly recommended and stupendously limited - move quick!

                Cerberus Future Technologies

                Frequency Adjustments Vol. 1

                  Post apocalyptical, auditory machine-dirge signalling the shift in solar winds and featuring, amongst others Manchester finest hardware mangler, Ste Spandex. Cerberus Future Technologies is a new label featuring cosmic vibrations, interstellar energy and Orgonite-fuelled sonic communications beamed straight outta Levenshulme, MCR. This first compilation is a genuine treasure of a release. The cassette tape features 18 tracks from the galactic creative, mixed via analogue wizardry by starship commander Ste Spandex. Alongside this, purchase of the tape allows digital downloads to all tracks featured on the cassette as individual files - perfect for those DJs wishing to harness Cerberus' alien voodoo in their DJ sets. There's plenty of digital bonuses included too, but let's concentrate on the tape that you'll hopefully have in your hands. The music, as mentioned, conjures up images of a scorched Earth, after a thousand wars and conflicts have obliterated all organic life. Rather than take the sparse, barren aesthetic associated with this music metaphor, Cerberus opt for a fully crazed audio assault, filling the tape with frenetic sonic artefacts as the clattering and splurging of a thousand re-wired machines do battle against just-audible vocals and lashings of acid. Somewhere between Afrikans With Mainframes, Suicide and Ron Hardy all jamming away in a sherm stick-fuelled Muzik Box (Chicago) circa 2040AD. Fuckin' mindblowin'. Hats off to the crew for creating a new sound from our city - there's nothing like this out there at the moment pop pickers, and this surely marks a historical moment in our city's fine DIY heritage. A future classic - handily made collectable and tangible through this beautifully presented cassette tape and made accessible via its connection to the computers that we all live our life through. Essential.
