It's been nearly a year since experimentalist Tackle (AKA Australian exile Greg Steele) made his debut on Berlin-based imprint Another Dark Age with the acclaimed Benzedrine EP. This belated follow-up sees the producer transfer to A Colourful Storm in order to deliver two more eccentric assaults on the senses. On A-side "Grondman" he crowds out homemade field recordings of Australian horse races with buzzing, Nine Inch Nails style guitars, fizzing electronics, dystopian textures and scattergun, thrill-a-minute breakbeats. Flipside "Smoke Point" is, if anything, even more robust and in your face, with Steele accompanying his usual fuzzy electronics and razor-sharp riffs with a hectic, techno style rhythm track.
