Editions Mego offshoot Spectum Spools has been gaining wide attention recently, partly thanks to Bee Mask's peerless work but also through Ren Schofield's maniacal excursions. The man otherwise known as Container has already produced one LP for the label and this new work sees a maturation of his experimental side, furthering it into an overwhelming cesspool of electro-tinged madness. Opening with "Dripping" is certainly a bold move, with a demented beat arrangement swirling feverishly into a sea of screeching noises and aggressive bells; things show no signs of slowing down on "Paralyzed", mixing a bumping breakbeat structure together with layers upon layers of effects and wild percussion elements. "Acclimator" settles into a neater groove, one which faintly resembles a murky, deep techno moment - delayed snares and crackling drums all round. Over on the B-side, we have what resembles Drexciya on acid, the merciless drums of "Perforate" occupying every corner of the track with a swirling mass of 303-tweaked melodies forming a dense puddle of sci-fi atmospherics; while "Refract" combines a crispy post-jungle drum structure with minimalistic tones and eerie synths. Container pushing the limits on this one - warmly recommended!
