Despite having a Teutonic-sounding name, Schmutz is actually a production act from Belfast with releases on Dirt Crew and 4 Lux. No Reason is their third release and offers up more expertly executed house and techno jams. "Two Seconds" is a tough, rolling house groove, its drums robust and steely, but it never strays into a faceless linear cul de sac. "No Reason" is in a similar vein; the key difference this time is that the pair uses repetitive vocal samples and heavy filters. "Spides" is harder and faster and despite being underpinned by tough kicks, it does not lapse into banging senselessness.
What is Album Only?
