By now, we should know what to expect from Alistair “Perc” Wells. The no-holds-barred techno maestro has been providing DJs with murky, clandestine workouts for the best part of 15 years, and shows no signs of slowing down.
Here he returns to Lucy‘s Stroboscopic Artefacts label with three more tracks of apocalyptic dancefloor creepiness. While the title track flips the script by blending industrial IDM hits with clanging, metallic textures, the EP’s other two cuts are spooky, concrete-clad, brutalist techno shufflers. Of these, it’s the broken clocks, panicked noises and thumping bottom-end of “The Death of Rebirth” that stands out.
