Lanark Artefax
Whities 011
Catalogue Number
Release Date
June 9, 2017


Whities drop what possibly amounts to the label's most choice cut since Kowton's Glock & Roll, the fittingly titled Whities 011 by Glasgow-based club deconstructionist Lanark Artefax. Channeling the spirits of Drexciyan electro and Gescom hip-hop, Lanark has carved out an EP destined for primetime play by those who know.

Opening with the sugar coated digi-dub euphoria of 'Flickering Debris' instantly we can tell Lanark has been honing his craft since his debut 12" Glasz was picked up by Lee Gamble for UIQ, traversing the same avenues of aquacrunk that fellow Glaswegian Rustie built his rep on, Lanark swiftly moves into the Ae vein of abstract electronica with 'Hyphen To Splice' a sort of Optical jungle 2.0 rebuild with an updated West LDN broken beat swing. On the reverse, recent single 'Touch Absence' rolls a killer electro roll, shredding everything that gets in its way whilst giving the drums a perfect glaze of lazer guided 2-step pads, whilst the 12" is finished off with 'Voices Near The Hypocentre' - a double drop of a floating atmosphere with a horizontal viewpoint of sci-fi synth panning an ethereal vox that creates a soft landing after the devastating highs brought on by the three previous outings.

An utterly sick 12" that as the label points out has recently been given a good battering by none other than AFX... !! So be quick if you need a copy as these ain't gonna stick around for long....
