Cool release. The tracks are really heavy and sludgy, but at fairly upbeat tempos. Showcasing some cool synthesizer distortions. I will also say that this was packaged quite poorly. I guess the cutout sleeve is kinda cool, but the disc in my new copy arrived badly scuffed and incredibly caked with paper bits from the jacket. It needed an extremely thorough cleaning to get into playable shape, then still has a lot of noticeable surface noise. The mastering is nice and loud though. Bass rattle stars out the sky.
They had my curiosity with a new Bug release, but they had my attention with a product description that said "This is massively disorientating stuff, not for the faint of heart." I mean, come on! It's cool that the tracks were made with Elektron hardware. The sequencing and sampling can get a bit repetitive, but it's certainly got a unique feel throughout. The music is a little out there, although I'm not sure I'd go as far as "massively disorienting" with it. Press sounds fantastic, nice and loud. There's no inner sleeve (just the cardboard sleeve), but i guess you can't win them all. Very interesting project overall.
