Effy - The dark side of the force is strong with this one no doubt. Keiran Craddock and Peter Fleming first appeared on our radars after the release of the downright evil ‘The Look/Forth’, now it seems they’re back for more on Canadian label Infinite Machine.
We first heard the title track ‘Move’ on the Swamp81 podcast a while back and on the drop I remember Chunky saying ‘Stick that in your pipe and smoke it son’ which says it all really. This track is hard beyond measure. Big industrial clunks arrange a chunky groove with a haunting vocal over the top. Throughout the track deep and sinister bass hits are introduced to devastating effect. On the remix, Infamous techno wizard Troy Gunner strips the track of all but the essentials. Your never quite sure where this remix is going, with mad percussive intricacies teasing at a structure. Minimal and methodical remix, one for the headz.
More of the same on Bourbon Switch really from the Duo. The flipside takes a more club pounding angle but in signature style, employs big low frequency percussion to complement the offbeat groove in the track. Again a track with pure warehouse potency from start to finish. On the remix Hound Scales rolls out a near unrecognisable version, with asylum style vocal screeches and factory grade percussion. An interesting take for those who like their techno as industrial as it comes.
A downright destructive EP really. We’ve loved ‘Move’ ever since Loefah began plugging it so we’re now more than chuffed to finally be able to play it out ourselves. Weighty EP right here.
The ‘Distant Sounds’ EP will be released via Infinate Machine on September 29th, pre-order it here.
