Review: Lustwerk Music presents a mysterious new entity known simply as The Fock. With little to no background information, this record stakes its own claim within the Galcher-verse by offering up a range of mixes of "Shat Pop." The "Saldes Mix" is a proper immersion heater of cerebral techno, while the nervy, stomping "Flood1 Remix" is credited to White Material regular Young Male. The "Electro Mix" has a squelchy, boogie-inflected palette offset by woozy atmospherics, and the "Ambient Mix" unsurprisingly does away with the drums and drifts in limbo with a disembodied tannoy announcement for company.
Review: Birmingham's Quitter teams up with Sheffield's Tommy Vicari Jr on LTD01 for new imprint Les Temps Difficiles. "Just Like It Is" sees them throw down a cyclical and functional groove with just the right amount of thump while "Serious Doubts" gets a lot funkier with its onslaught of modular blips and blurbs creating oddly hypnotic aesthetic. Finally Vicari Jnr goes solo on "Levels" and rough and ready analogue house jam covered in just the right amounts of dust and rust and getting some real soul out of the machines.
