Returning to Vae Victis, for whom they provided the label's inaugural release, Blawan and The Analogue Cops nevertheless make their debut under the Parassela banner, a moniker inaugurated by a blink-and-you'll-miss-it white label this summer. In terms of sound, the Label Nightmares EP is a heavier affair than those early productions; "Never A Night Rest" throws abstract sound waves and distorted synth blasts in among its jerky tom-led rhythm, while "Bad Treatment" is a nod to the heyday of 140bpm techno, as gurgling bass and rough percussion are contrasted with ambient chords. On the flip, "The Berlin Experiment" has all the demonic qualities of Blawan's recent missives for Hinge Finger and Black Sun, as twisted vocals mingle with raw analogue noise; Vae Victis's Die Roh round things off with a suitably hard remix of the track, all pulsating chords and jackhammer rhythms.
