Spine crunching and synapse scorching 12″-EP by Black Chow, the not-from-this-planet side project of Kevin “The Bug” Martin (King Midas, Techno Animal) and Kiki Hitomi (King Midas, Dokkebi Q), extending the intense echo-dripping vibe of their killer track “Wonderland” from the compilation “Jahtarian Dubbers Vol. 2” into a whole EP.
Following the haunting Japanese original on side A is Pupajim‘s “Signs” with its tsunami-powered vocal style, turning the riddim into something that can only be described as a “bass opera” – utterly unique, totally addictive and absolutely unheard of so far. A deadly and stripped-to-the-bone dub version is on A3.
“Danger” on side B certainly lives up to the title. Casio driven 8-bit loops run through an echo chamber on a sonic warfare weapons testing range, with Kiki Hitomi on the spaceship intercom. The dub version will definitely create a black hole in your neighbourhood. Bass music straight
from the bomb shelter on Mars.
The 12″ comes with amazing artwork by Kiki Hitomi!
