this is the 4th release on riot radio records, an independent techno label based in scotland. subhead is a completely unique techno act whose sound is instantly recognizable and has a well earned reputation for energetic live shows mixing its core techno ammo with both hip hop sound aesthetics and a solid dose of punk rock attitude. their previous releases have appeared on various stunning labels including don’t, neue heimat, sativae, tresor and its own subhead & 2cb imprints. this release has three original subhead tracks, ‘sod it!’, ‘yknot’, ‘slagheap’ and a never before occurrence whereby jason leach has actually let someone remix one of his own compositions. who’s even capable of such a feet ……… crystal distortion of course with his remix of ‘slagheap’ which is an auditory event of such magnitude it defies all sensory belief. the mentalist machine menaces have spoken.
