Zhark CD comp 0001
Zhark CD0001 | Out: 09.05.1997
Varied compilation from the Zhark label that draws sustenance from its links to German post-techno producers like Alec Empire, Kerosene and 4E. Threaded through with the darkbience of a four part track from Huren called Camera Obscura this compilation strays away from speed and 4/4 pitfalls and experiments around slower spacious beats. Suprises come in the form of Hecate's Victims of the Digits: a moody and descending sound collage that gives-off an irresolute tension and with Eradicator's Grenade Gadget where insistent, distorted loops are pitted against funky kit-beats. El Turco Loco provides manic repetition and Alec Empire unleashes the mobile mess of dirty timbre. However the dissolute and compelling Heartattck from Lynn Powderhorn strikes through with its whispering, sleazy threats and flanged-up break. Bomb 20, Detroit Dirty Dick and Kerosene's Heroin also feature.
