Montgomery Clunk aka CLNK heads back to Error Broadcast for a puristic, no frills, artillery of tracks for his new Black Ecstasy LP. Bringing together alien sounds and minimalist jacking, the producer treads through no-nonsense techno and deranged electronic beats. Aside from the wonderful title track, check "CPR" and "Home" for the utter truth. It's all pretty gnarly, though.
Dropping single number 3 for his Ultramajic imprint, Jimmy Edgar is bringing some no-nonsense electro heat to the boil across three tracks and then sprinkling all kinds of unusual spices to twist the proceedings up. "Ultraviolet" is the most straight-up affair, strutting on a rigid groove and gnarly synth lines that spit out a clear message that it's time to party. "Qlinda" is more curious with its insistent vocal snippets nagging away against the relatively austere deep house groove, but there's still room for some of the choppy edit trickery that Edgar made his name on. "Mercurio" meanwhile gets on a Dance Mania hype that keeps the mood raw and rough, mixing in a touch of footwork and darting into breakdowns and build ups erratically to keep the dancers on their toes.
