MIDNIGHT SHIFT

Exceptional return of L/F/D/M aka Love’s Flacid Disco Muscle on Midnight Shift, with a remix by Nick Dunton of 65D Mavericks, resurfacing under his latest moniker D-56M. Abrasive acidic trax from the edge from this mainstay of machine music. "Sixteen Snakes" is an all out sensory assault, not a million miles away from the darkest of Ste Spandex's Cerberus output - rattling metallic perc, buzzsaw distortion and flailing sine tones combining like a battering ram of hardware tekno. "X-Enter-O" is characterized by growling, low-tuned LFOs that spit analogue phlegm over static hats and incessant modular rhythms; an expert display by a producer with a total grip on his instruments. "Silver Grain" sees aerial-born leads circle above crackling electronic discharge for an experimental but nonetheless engrossing piece that concludes the EP on a high. Wonderful stuff here.

Martin says: Midnight Shift continue their interstellar war cry with hardware molester L/F/D/M on the guns for this latest campaign.

5 years since Midnight Shift’s first release in 2012, the label assembles a collective of artists, most of them are in advance of their full EPs releasing later. A motley crew of agro hardware hustlers, there's some household names hid amongst a plethora of alter egos. The Hacker takes on Amato guise, Marco Bernardi becomes Terry Lambogini and Hodge & Gramrcy join forces on the opening track - it's a family affair alright! From abstract acrobatics to the abrasive side of the spectrum, interspersed by some big fat techno gob smacks. Plenty of styles and flavours contained within but all kickin' hot and spicy! Personal favourite is the schizoid tech-step-wobble of Terry Lamborgini's "The Gurning Vineer" but there's more delicate and gentile moments for the more fragile and heart worn. A really solid compilation for late night club dwellers across the universe.

Matt says: PPHHWWOOOR! If "The Gurning Vineer" doesn't melt your face off into a pool of acid puddles then I'll attempt to break the land speed record on the back of 303....

Pulsating, arpeggiated, snarling beasts here from an Italian producer together with an ominous-sounding remix by Heinrich Mueller aka Gerald Donald of Drexciya. Track titles refer to the journeys of the Sky Dragon (A1), Yellow Dragon (A2) and Dragon King (B1/B2) as they soar and serpentine majestically underwater and beyond the clouds. Crushing waves of gurgling synthesis mix with expertly assembled rhythms and a gliding, no-friction aesthetic as we soar down the rainbow road. The Drexciyan master sorcery provides some much needed black magic, a vigorous and hermetic workout which sees the electro cauldron spurting fractals and plasma balls from its fiery core. Absolutely killer stuff here for electro and techno heads alike. Much recommended.
