EKOPLEKZ - Intrusive Incidentalz Vol 1 (Punch Drunk)

EKOPLEKZ - Intrusive Incidentalz Vol 1 (Punch Drunk) Comentários: *Available as a 12″ vinyl LP or digital download. If you pre-order the vinyl direct from Punch Drunk’s shop, you will get a free digital copy included. * Following releases earlier this year on Mordant Music and Further Records, Ekoplekz returns with this intriguing release on Peverelist's Punch Drunk. Taking its cues more from 70s library music and the early radiophonic experimentation of Delia Derbyshire than it does from Bristol's bass scene, this collection of claustrophobic terrors nevertheless displays an undisputed debt to the sounds of contemporary dubstep, particularly on "Soviet Drum Brain Attack", where mangled samples are held together with a tolling bass. For the most part the mood is distinctly avant-garde, with highlights including "Rogue Circuits", which can only be described as the sound of a seasick dial-up modem shifting through a number of increasingly darkening moods, and "Devil Mixture" which is reminiscent of the sound of fearful analogue synthesisers trapped in a gathering storm. But it's final track "Maelstrom" where the influence of dance music is most obvious, as metallic tones brush against skittering snares in a track that isn't unlike a more pastoral approximation of Aphex Twin. [Para Ouvir/Samples]
