Description

This entirely improvised session captures Russell in the wild, trapped between daemonic nO!se and snapjaw drum patterns nodding to early Omar Santana or Carlos Berrio and his own past as a go-to studio editor for labels such as Mute. The A-side is a slyly arousing but terrifying thing called 'Foxy' meshing masticated noise gristle to manic, chattering hi-hats, all angled and affective like a box of knock-off fireworks hoyed at the 'floor. Flipside is even better, a flashback to the untouchable edits of late '80s Latin Freestyle and the hyperfunktional percussive grammar of Cabaret Voltaire, Ministry or Mayday.
