Shipwrec cement what is hopefully the first of many albums from ambient-electro lynchpin Datassette with Selected Offal.
Arriving two yeas after his Apollo 12", which bought the Datasette sound to a wider audience, he submerged himself back in the electronic underground before without little fanfare or warning dropped a hundred track strong pick 'n' mix of 100 strong dubs written between and put into the binary title Offal (1999-2014) .
Moving to the present day and Shipwrec have done the world a favour by collating a seventeen track album, spread across two 12"s (and for the digital heads a bonus track to boot), Selected Offal features a stripped-back and finely tuned entry point into the vast project.
Compiled with suggestions of fans, unheard and alternate versions, Selected Offal goes a long way to showcasing how diverse a talent Datassette is. Whether it's producing fuzzy tape tekno on Hands Faces, washes of neo-classical ambience on Vocoder Mic Tap Loop Verb, cut and paste disco on Floozen B or providing a must-be-heard-to-be-believed cover of the John Maus classic Crucifix.
For many of you we imagine Datassette may well be a name unknown, but on Selected Offal his mixture of crisp production and well executed, yet cheeky swagger are sure to see those with a soft spot for Bochum Welt, Mood Hut, MNLTH, James Ferraro. Leyland Kirby & Chris Clark make some well deserved space on their record shelves and hard drives for him.
