B•O•M is the fifth album by freak electronic producer NCHX (NOCHEXXX). A percussive planet of acid-techno, UK bass, house and electro-phonk, hosed down with a chemical wash of post-dubstep and UK bleep contaminants. Released by Plastic Horse, this latest offering follows a slew of vinyl for esteemed UK labels Alien Jams, Ramp, Type and Werk Discs. Plastic Horse are a London based animation studio who have directed music videos for artists such as Tenderlonious, Mo Kolours, Paul White, Vaudou Game, Crookers and Débruit. They have previously worked with Nochexxx on the music video for ‘Charro’ and the short film ‘Thrusters’ in support of his 2014 LP on Ramp Recordings.
Departing with a tube station screech, Hunting Hides signals a lone defender’s ride through the underground - trace amounts of musique concrete dart around the tunnel walls, while sub-low cushions the rumble. Entercol is perfect 3am mix fodder; saturation hot-points push beneath a middle eastern theme, whilst Seventh Gun Territory is pure rapid-fire bongo bizness - a concrete terrain punctuated with corrugated metal grids and moving shadows: distorted poly-metered brutalism! Cybertush is the perfect OST to a club littered with vape pens, while B-Boi bots flirt with promiscuous A.I. Arguably the most fierce cut is Teflontuan - an ode to NCHX’s favourite pro Antwuan Dixon - the Deathwish skater lands bolts with the illest of steeze. Side-chained 303 squelch rattles alongside x0x sequenced drums as wavetable pads float above kinked rails. A nights gallop over city curbs. The LP signs off with Location Scout, a SpaceX sample-return mission heading back to earth with a fistful of deep house red planet crumble.
