Ansome is the enfant terrible of the UK techno scene. Real name Kieran Whitefield, his hardware-driven tracks are always noisy, energetic and irreverent. On British Steel, his latest venture for Ali Wells' label, all these characteristics are abundant. The title track is a pummelling, broken beat affair, while "Marching Powder" sees him opt for a straighter groove, as concrete kicks support droning, visceral textures. "Poison Your Body" is techno in sound but punk in nature as a vocal screeches and shrieks over a pounding industrial rhythm that replicates the sound of someone scraping their finger nails down a black board. Closing track "Granite & Mortar" is just as twisted, with Ansome returning to broken beats and spewing out electronic feedback and guttural rage.
