Anklepants ‘Amilia-Face-E-On EP’

[Release page] Electrical downpours of dubstep, grit and disjointed bass falling from the machinery of Anklepants is released by the forward-thinking folks at Detroit Underground. The opening track, “Complete Driver Wankface Meets Art Kid,” emits a cacophony of effects, fluctuated rhythm and moody debris as an eventual breakdown of hypnotic pulses get tangled in a data storm. Playful elements of dubstep drip from the edges of the oddly titled second cut, “Insideyourfacedubstepbeanstalktoheavenfortheatheist”—yes, it’s one word—as it bends and contorts processed vocodered lyrics and female sung chorus line with a flickering bleep-infested contour. Elsewhere you’ll be hard-pressed to find a moment of silence. “Professor Hoegen” disentangles a surplus of raw electronics from the past decade—filtering post-industrial layers of darkness and absorbing them via deeply strewn bass and wide beats. “WHY DONT THE COOL KIDS LIKE ME” offers 10-minutes of beautiful chaos in the form of crunched 8-bit mayhem, blips, bleeps and R2-D2 anthems that are quite contagious. Bass takes a front seat of the low-riding thug and thump of “Sheridans Flashbacks – The Creature” and its brain numbing assortment of minimal hip-hop extracts. Dark lyrical shivers of light break through the ashes (akin to a sober Otto Von Schirach dynamic), though Anklepants manages to flex sonic muscles with remix assistance from Sense, Annie Hall and Valance Drakes. Overall Anklepants delivers a plethora of multi-genre frequency manipulations that blend and cascade into a solid platform of pure electronic creativity. Brisk in its venture through known and unknown spaces, the Amelia-Face-E-On EP is an exemplary collection of dubstep, bass, IDM and post-industrial chemicals all rolled into a solid 9-pack concoction for Detroit Underground.
