Following up releases by the likes of D.A.R.F.D.H.S and Bestial Mouths, Clan Destine are back, and this selection of various artists continues with their appetite for gritty, low down techno. Shady P's "X Is Whole" is like a Mechanisms Industries 12" played on 33, grinding and sludgy. Marshall Applewhite's "Prostrate" and How R U" by The Friend are pounding and piercing acid techno stompers that you'd have thought to be on Djax Up Beats, circa-'93. "Access Granted" by Gregor Garnutsi is a change of tempo; a deep and atmospheric number with a dreamy chime melody and interesting off beat. "Astaroth" by modern industrial upstarts from Belgium, Orphan Swords, comes off sounding like Ancient Methods on this brutalist industrial strength monster.
