THE TRILOGY TAPES

Instalment three of the highly popular and sought-after Dolo! Dolo percussion. Expect intricate beats on this beast because it is all about percussion as the title rightly hints. 
 
A1 or Dolo 9 is a warmer up, works well when heating up the dancefloor. By the time you hit 'Dolo 10' you are entering Trilogy Tapes territory head first. Things become a bit more challenging and intricate. Atonal melodies accompany the already crowded beats here. Not bad. 
Turn this vinyl over and you get 'Dolo 11', it sound like made with a Casio in a good way. Dark? Yes. Playable? Yes. And the triangle in here is sweet and friendly. My favourite track here. Again pure unadultered percussion tools here, folks. 
And closing act is 'Dolo 12', this is perhaps the one that deserves the adjective of 'banger'. It is a bad boy. A simple one but effective it is. Seductive and dark at times but dead good and you will get a reaction.

Sil says: Here it is number three of my favourite percussion tools that have been released in recent times. Four tools that will not dissappoint with a banger in disguise. Total destruction.

DJ Nobu & NHK yx Koyxen become MTv for a true Trilogy Tapes themed excursion. "Snow Ball" and "Smart Ball", on the A-side, are two sides of the same coin; the former bleeps placidly to an eerie groove of molecular hypnotics, subtle rhythms hidden amogst the static; while the latter enters the rave with a slow yet brutalist assortment of bass bumps. Intricate little grooves and jarring swaure waves. "Smooth Motion" is a fuzzy, imperceptible techno experiment in the same style as Thomas Brinkmann's oddities, and "Look Back Motion" rattles an itchy, acid-driven stomper over a bare-bones groove that has TTT stamped all over it. Dramatic and tension fuelled throughout, MTv providing a strong addition to TTT's impeccable catalogue...

Will Bankhead's Trilogy Tapes label keeps up the full spectrum techno assault on this, the second of two releases to drop this week. Eomac delivers a mindboggling jungle-breakcore-noise hybrid on "Hither, Pappy", recalling elements of Atari Teenage Riot, Autechre and Scam records then mashing them through an post-industrial meat grinder. "Husk" quickly slams its foot on the brakes, easing us back into a blurred 125BPM groove, buzzing with electrostatic discharge. This one hits the veins usually mainlined by techno users Blawan, Analogue Cops, Midland etc. "Tunnel" on the flip gets very corrosive, very quickly! Before long harsh white noise shards and gurgling distorted acid are flatlined right against our eardrums. Brutal, punishing, tech; and just when you think this one's done with you, it spits you back out and punishes you some more - there is no escape!! "I Love You, I Miss You" finally lets us rest, or rather recover, after the unrelenting attack of blast beats. Spiralling off into a dreamy but malevolent cloud of ghostly vocals and plinky-plonky beats.
