Ascion, D. Carbone & Shapednoise's Repitch Recordings hits five-years strong with a jaw-dropping collection of industrial-strength techno that crushes the influence of jungle & noise in its wake, a true to form lesson in how to sculpt the hardest sounds out of your machines.
Alongside the three minds that conjure up the Repitch sound, Dys Functional Electronic Music features some of the very best artists (and a few surprises!) working on the fringes of noise, techno and hardcore. With old names from the vanguard firing on all cylinders we are treated to the delirious jackknife gabba of AnD, the Zenker Brothers breakbeat dub, Pinch's post-genre sci-fi ambience & Skudge's woodblock roll. To newer names within the firm such as The Exaltics turning in an utterly sickening acid stomper, Gaja's Havoc Recs style mentasm mash up & Nuel's electro gliding Biopunk.
Hitting the absolute peaks of the package are the three label dons, this takes shape in the form of Ascion rolling a junglist drop that sounds like those 7 am substance heavy moments when the music, club and crowd all around you blur into one mind-melting scene of 4 x 4 bliss. D. Carbone riding a Comma Wave with raw militant hooks ripping apart any notion 2 notion you may have of techno in 2017 and Shapednoise's 0.1dbhisdoi'fioa with its concrete slab grind that sounds like a thousand MacBook Pro's being ripped apart by a techno x noise supergroup consisting of Scorn, Jeff Mills & Chris Carter - aka the most mind-melting euphoric destruction you are gonna hear on wax any time soon.
Not since the halcyon daze of No-U Turn have we seen a collective tear apart the rule book of underground club sounds in quite a way that expels such a no messin' about heaviness. Dys Functional Electronic Music is a fascinating viewpoint into Repitch, a label operating at the centre of techno's hidden reverse.
