Old World Disorder

Lawless but carefully wrought d’n’b/electro/dark-ambient experiments from incognito UVB-76 operative Karim Maas (“a familiar face behind a new mask," apparently).  ‘C_C_E_D’ is a lean, mean, dungeon-stepper in the vein of classic Ruffhouse (‘Straight 9’s, ‘The Foot’++), but with even more missile-like speed, intensity and bad intentions. With its ominous sampled speech and post-nuclear bass tremors, the beatless ‘Lizzard King’ owes equal debts to Photek’s ‘UFO’ and Lustmord's forbidden planet dronescapes. Huren’s remix of ‘Cassette A’ comes over like distorted radio transmission from a 2000AD-ish guerrilla commando unit on some distant planet (worries in the dance, to put it mildly), 'Civilised' is reverb-choked, noise-corroded post-BMB techno, and, beyond the gothic FX, ‘Zombissim’ is a pretty visionary slice of sub-walloping, dnb-compatible electro. You spent so long waiting for people to make music like this, don't forget to show up now they finally have! Killer 12”!
