komposi003:

A brilliant electronic compilation that features some electronic artists that I've reviewed recently and totally loved, starting with the album opener by Amish Rake Fight. Micronaut not only has a song on here but does a remix for an s.sturgis song. Positron Records is the label responsible for this nugget of brilliance and it happens to be a label by Sister Machine Gun's Chris Randall both of which have a track on here. In addition, Scanalyzer's "Culture Shock" will shake you up. Support this label and pick up this glorious compilation!

On The One And The Zero:

Scanalyzer is a new collaborative project from Chris Randall and Wade Alin. Randall has always been about the funk, both in his industrial rock group Sister Machine Gun and his techno side project Micronaut, and Alin seems to have worked out his rage for the time being in Christ Analogue and has since been devoting most of his time to the soulful trip-hop of his new band, Atomica. It's kind of a surprise, then, how dark and evil Scanalyzer sounds. The four-on-the-floor onslaught of "Herstius" would fit right in between Combichrist and Terrorfakt on the dance floor, and "Scan7" is cold, clinical and noisy, with all the rhythmic complexity and feedback of Hecate or Black Lung. "Moretech" and the down-tempo "Hifishit" are still dark, but less abrasive, incorporating pianos and strings for a sense of noir drum 'n' bass, while "Monotreme," already inherently cool for taking its name from the family of egg-laying mammals that includes the duck-billed platypus and all manner of echidnas, adds gorgeous layers of looped violin and cello over muffled, reverberating breakbeats for an effect that's ominous but lovely. By the second half of the album, Randall and Alin ease up a little from the relentlessly grim vibes, and Randall's irrepressible funk creeps back into the mix. "Screamer" is still noisy as hell, but its crazy screeching and frantic jungle rhythms come across as psychotically joyous, rather than pathologically violent, while "Neutron Dub" incorporates synthesized speech and snappy breakbeats, resulting in what sounds like an old Speak-N-Spell toy strung out on crystal meth. If you're a rhythmic noise junky who's avoided Randall and Alin's work up to now in fear of its accessibility, give Scanalyzer a chance. This is the one where they pull out all the stops, and it's a lot more chaotic than you might've expected.
