You ever go out shopping alone, or with some of your buddies you dragged along, and you just find something on the racks that, until that very moment, you had no idea you needed in your life? If you find yourself thinking that your ideal world is one that’s very cyberpunk in nature, where maybe you’re one of the most adept hackers on the planet, I think Sabla’s¬†Spirits EP will help realize said world for you – this can be that impulse buy. All of these tracks sound like a world where steam rises from every manhole cover on the streets. They sound like a world where every store/restaurant sign is stylized with the most nauseating lime/mint green/baby blue/carmine red neon filaments. They sound like a world where the color palette is about as dark as the abyss of the ocean. All of this to say… it sounds dystopian. Check out previews to all of the tracks via the Buy Now link below and see what you think of them. Cheers!
Sabla moves on Gang Of Ducks ‚Äď
Furthering the inclination for sludgy, technoid machine music ‚Äď G.O.D. bring us a hefty six-track disc with cuts from Sabla‚Äôs lab.
Overall, the disc runs from harder, rhythmical late-night club cuts through to the submerged depths of techno‚Äôs underbelly ‚Äď a sound that Gang Of Ducks seems to be familiarising with each of it‚Äôs releases ‚Äď as we approach the centre of the disc on Side A, things do get really murky‚Ä¶ With whirring whistles and electroid humming signalling over a chest-crushing sine wave and mashed-up percussion making up the brilliant ‚ÄėSpirits‚Äô original version‚Ä¶
Flip it around for the finishing touches to this excellent EP‚Ä¶ The disorientating versioning of ‚ÄėSpirits‚Äô by G.O.D. and the definite banger of them all, the remix by ‚ÄėItal‚Äô of 100% Silk fame ‚Äď adding four to the floor groove injecting light into the darkness with chimes and bells.
Wicked stuff, equally measured for the home-turntable or for club-use!
Also, perhaps the crispest of the Gang Of Ducks releases yet ‚Äď visually.
Served in printed poly sleeve.
