65daysofstatic - The Distant And Mechanised Glow Of Eastern European Dance Parties (EP)

Definitely something you can't miss, here's the latest release from 65daysofstatic, a glitch-punk project coming from Sheffield in England. Consisting of loose reinterpretations of an awesomely-titled song taken from their own last year's album "The Destruction Of Small Ideas", it's no exaggeration to say that the 4 tracks from this EP manage to single-handedly take music to sparkling new extremes, bringing on its way some trademark elements of industrial and experimental electronics and then completely subverting them (and thus, here's the main reason why they've often been compared to Aphex Twin). Full of violent incessant beats, spiralling rave synths, bombastic guitar riffs and pulsating digital effects, "...Dance Parties" is nothing less than a non-stop assault on the senses, one to send the incautious listener into repeated and ecstatic convulsions. Wanna get political? These shameless techno terrorists do nothing less than applying the principles of pure anarchy to their sound and they end up with some uniquely explosive and overpowering results. (7,5/10)
