scorn has hit a new level since last years groundbreaking >refuse, start fires<. after 4 years of rolling out beats and darkness at an even lower tempo, >yozza< highlights just how well mick harris (ex-napalm death, painkiller, lull, quoit) has been able to adapt and persevere. once again collaborating with live drummer ian yan treacy, this 4 track ep is inspired by the bleakness and desperation of the >the boys from the blackstuff< shorts of the 1980s and the title character yosser hughes. treacy blasts and smashes thru >piper< in full highlight mode, as harris dubs and drops major bass. the rest of the album is harris electronic shooting range, taking aim and layering on the bleakest of the bleak – no hope and no help coming during the dark era of the films inspiring this ep.
silent killer returns following the success last years >everyone bleeds<, and this time hes brought co-producer breaker along and a star studded list of collaborators on >amongst villains<. everyone who is currently making waves in the world of hard drum n bass makes a contribution, yet the album is surprisingly diverse, melodic, and memorable.
scorns fourteenth full length release remains in the vibe and tempo of modern dubstep while adding a brand new element to the scorn sound: a live drummer, ian >yan< treacy. the vibrant sounds of the kit are run thru the filters and dub wizardry of mick harris, former drummer of napalm death and guinness world record holder for composer of the worlds shortest song.the tracks are a journey into dark atmospheres and atomic warhead bass, with more variation and hue than 2007s >stealth<. yet on >refuse, start fires< harris has returned to painting angry pictures with more colours than simply black - the record takes on new territory at the 70 bpm mark, and the live kit gives the tracks a more fluid groove than ever in places. but this is scorn, and scorn delivers darkness and anger like no one else, with merciless cuts such as bear felt nowt and shitwinds a-coming providing harsh atmospheres and endurance test bass wobble like only mick harris can dish out. scorn is an entity - for over 15 years mick harris has not relented with the projects dubbed out beats, film noir atmospheres, and over the top bass compulsions. >refuse, start fires< is perhaps the angriest and most well articulated of his projects in the last decade.
