Hailing from Chicago's Southside, the Dar Embarks duo make music that is clearly influenced by their hometown's musical heritage, but which also has relevance today. Tough and slamming, Fleer is a product of live hardware jams and no edits. "Arcane" and "Jaleco" set the scene with wild analogue howls and thick layers of acid. "Voodoo 97" isn't quite as visceral, and revolves around a churning chord sequence, but it's only a brief interlude. If anything, this release gets harder and heavier as it progresses, with the distorted kick drums of "Upper Deck" and the banging "Tadao" reminiscent of vintage Robert Armani and John Heckle at his hardest.
