Taking a break from his surgical commitments, Anthony Child serves up some avant-garde noise excursions with this album. It's an infinitesimal exploration of found sound and tone generation, purportedly examining negative space and culled from Child's years of studies on the side of his more prominent techno output. It's a curious ride through academia, at times as serene as the subtle hum of a suburb, at others a cataclysmic pulse raging down on your senses, but there's no escaping the attention to detail that has gone into forming this pair of sonic suites.
The most shocking this about this mix from legendary techno DJ/ producer Dave Clarke is that it's his first for Fabric. So was it worth the wait? Certainly, it shows Clarke at his defiant best, effortlessly joining he dots between sci-fi electro and intense, darkroom techno with a smattering of sublime Detroitian moments thrown in. Along the way, he finds time to squeeze in some real gems, from the sparkling late night techno-funk of Kenny Larkin's sublime remix of the Marc Romboy/Paris The Black Fu collab "Dark & Lovely" to the no- holds-barred aural assault that is Stephane Signore's "Sacrifice". Moody and inspiring stuff, all told.
