about

The Contort Yourself tradition of electronics pioneers, modern masters and new names continues into CY003. Enrique comes under that latter banner. The Hot Releases alumnus introduces the EP with the piston pounded belligerence of “Dissociate”. L.I.E.S. and Nation veteran Beau Wanzer continues this stroll into aggression. “Weasels” is an upturned work of techno. Nuts, bolts and the grisly inner workings are on show for this fast paced floor mangler. Spain’s industrial stalwarts Esplendor Geométrico open the flip. From 1988 the grit of the factory floor is carried into “Rotor.” A touch of the mystical is injected, chants looped through the hypnotic rhythms in this simmering classic. Broken English Club is on hand to rework “Rotor” into a guttering piece of Electro tainted machine music. If you’re hoping for some respite, think again. Prostitutes (Diagonal) closes with the cruel pummelling percussion of “Cuyahoga Frankenstein.”.
