||2.||"Mini Folia" (5:13)|
Grainy and overdriven machine house from Brazil on Berlin label 777 which sounds like it's been recorded from tape and will resonate with fans of LIES or Mathematics. This stuff is properly dirty in a seriously lo-fi way... First track "Charlie" is dirty techno punk using a rusty pawn shop drum machine pattern and backed by growling black metal guitar feedback; pretty serious! Next up "Mini Folia" clangs and clatters about the shop with a skipping and antagonising melody plus more overdriven guitar grunt in the background. On the flip "Metados" is more uplifting and dare we say... soulful? This melancholic deep house number still packs some punch with its overdriven kick and bumping bassline though, don't worry. Finally "Damas" is one more underground basement jam; a driving vintage groove with equals parts emotion and machine hiss and squeal!
