Corrupted chips meeting sector 303
Two Austrian artists united in the project DL/MS/ have started a new label with own productions and after experienced Dan Lodig, the duo’s other member Martin Sovinz aka Dibek appears on the fledgling imprint. The A-side continues the electro theme with a twist, known from DL/MS/’s release on TRUST. Off-the-hook title track starts with a pagan pixy whispering coded messages and bouncing bass hitting with a West Coast vibe, leaving us to decide whether of Dutch or US roots. On a slower note, brilliant “Slide” goes to the abstracter side when classified information is retrieved from corrupted memory chips.
The B-side takes a surprising turn with a fabulous acid house tool, when quirky 303 is applied in exploring “Monkey Mind” with faint traces of electro, a track that wouldn’t keep any smoke machines idle. For the end, “Beautiful Citizen” is killing it slowly with caustic waveforms and enigmatic vox.
