chicago flotation device deliver the fourth and final ep in their series of long lost tracks. whipping up a raucous four tracker that segues from scorched live noisy acid stompers to groove-heavy rollers and scuttling wonky minimal jams.
chicago flotation device follow up last year s brutal untitled acid excursions with a lighter but still pounding 12- on their self-titled. self-released imprint. higher is an extended peak-time acid jam. culled from hours of scissor-sythed outtake tapes and 3rd floor studio sessions. distilled into one bubbling. screeching banger. untitled 9 is a subtler take on the cfd sound. a clean 808-led. floating juno jam that drifts undetected in the dark waters off scarborough bay.
• handstamped white label from a uk live techno three-piece.
• heat-treated slabs of techno with scorched acid lines and sun-bleached pads.
• draws on classic uk techno and rave tropes - taking it back to the raw!
• mastered by christoph at d&m saturated. sunburnt techno from the heart of the uk. this raucous three-piece have had several solo records between them over the last 12 months but nothing quite this raw... acid lines that burn down warehouses. pads that shoot a ray of light through the darkness and intense industrial machinations mark this out as an exceptional debut !
