West Norwood Cassette Library - Collision and Detection v2



A cut-up of samples introduces the next instalment to this continuing series… a departure from the vivid strangeness of the last volume, definitely more dance orientated, scooting a highly commercial bent, with that ooooh, ooze vox tapped lightly in clubby beats and fruit machine diversities… I’m really liking the Jean Giraud / Morbius inspired arts for this one, as the arcade dub-ronics flip between signatures like sophisticated ferrets in a smooth slip of Jackson foot shimmy. Leaves me cruising round the lounge in some approximation of dance as those wispy plankton filters sliver around, and little zaps of bubble wrap metallic give out extra colouration...

The following track What’s going on is a dub reprise of the previous… gliding along on hot buttery programming… the drums chasing the bassy bump… soft Goldie-esque frivolity bent over bits of narrative (snippets from Jonny Mugwump's radio show) and ecstatic jungle(ish) flurry. The wow wow dog toy chorus finally leading you straight into solo drum jitters and a phonejacker digital spin of a sign out…

another intriguing addition to the collision and detection odyssey... where the next leads is anybodies guess.
