The latest volume in Brokntoys consistently excellent DDQ series comes courtesy of Elements of Joy, one of the lesser-known aliases of UVB producer Sebastien Michel. All four tracks originally slipped out on a limited cassette on Michel's own Body Theory label back in 2016, and here appear on vinyl for the very first time. Built around the producer's love of industrial, experimental new wave and dark ambient, all four cuts are fuzzy, dystopian and thoroughly alluring. Highlights include the foreboding, distorted shuffle of "Les Consequences De Mes Actes", the throbbing industrial-funk heaviness of opener "In Every Man" and the droning, guitar-laden growl of closing cut "The Great Struggle".
