Sim Hutchins who was behind one of the best UIQ's joins the ranks of Local Action, sticking it to rave nostalgia with the smoked out techno tones of Clubeighteen2thirty. Much like his UIQ 12" Vantablank Stare, Clubeighteen2thirty is the sound of dub techno with the filter gain turned up to 11. Each track's core elements feel like they are being pushed through a thick k-hole style wall of treacle, one that Sim's entire studio is seemingly sunk deep within.

Sim uses these stomach-churning melodies excellently to explore the darker undercurrent of self-medicating through drugs and rave music - tekno, jungle grime etc. Sim describes the album as something that “alludes to the fabrication of truths to create a sense of hope and optimism when there is little to be found at present ... there's an industry built on glorifying the past and it is a multimillion pound cliché making people richer every day. This is my enthusiasm for certain styles collapsing in on themselves with me conducting and orchestrating their demise.”

The resulting experience is what we imagine Vainqueur records would sound like if he had been toying around with a grime sample pack.
