Defunkt Dialekt ‎:: Clockworks EP (The Irrational Media Society)

Ultimately, Clockworks is a definitive exp-electronic space lost in a void of crimped extrasensory chaos.

Early-era Skam—including Gescom, Jega, Funkstörung et al—comes to mind while absorbing this limited slab of wax by Defunkt Dialekt released on The Irrational Media Society. Broken synths, machine drums, eerie tones, soundtrack tectonics and stripped melodies all simmer in glitch-hop infestation. Tangled digital slivers make their way onto vinyl format—300 copies worldwide—and a download is also available.

Shattered tonal activity, brittle textures and a crunch that includes bleeps, blips and blops are all in check. Erratic rhythms contort and elongate as formative elements soon dissipate into snips, snaps and distorted bass lines. The sonic dissection goes on further via  screeching sounds, Morse code, chopped samples, and digital-signal-processing overlapping each other. The A-side’s electronic grittiness mirrors the B-Side’s percussive waveforms. Access To Arasaka fans may revel in the futuristic zones that Valance Drakes exhibits on his remix—a blip-hop range of atmospherics lathered with darkened apocalyptic sheets. Decomposed electrical devices are sliced and diced via an improvised sound dynamic that takes Clockworks into rarely charted terrain. Ultimately, Clockworks is a definitive exp-electronic space lost in a void of crimped extrasensory chaos.

Clockworks EP is available on The Irrational Media Society. [Release page]
