Review

Deepblak come in from the stark, cold silence with their first transmission of 2012, the suitably titled Astral Metronome EP from label boss Aybee. Those familiar with the label will feel immediately at home amidst the expansive, smudged out sub frequencies of lead track "No Fiction" which soon becomes dominated by the rigid, snapping rhyhtms and a echoed out textural quality that is eerily akin to rust filled water dripping down your spine. Alongside it, "Ether" scratches granular dub techno abrasions into the gloopy bottom end whose viscous form threatens to offset the swing brought by the mechanical skip of drums. This 12" is added further singularity by the monolithic slab of low frequency analogue fudge that is "Kommands", which can only be described as sounding like Aybee mapping out a dystopian nightmare on a musical mainframe that gleefully disregards notions of genre.
