Electro Superstructure no. 19

entering the superstructure you sense it’s vastness as synths and robot voices endlessly float by, bouncing in mechanic rhythm off mammoth walls made of drum machine snares, girders of bass and tensile hi hats. the further in you go the more things abstract; sound clusters in corners and beats run on forever into the light.

When The Chimes End

Depth Charge (a.k.a. J. Saul Kane, founder of DC Recordings) is a mad combination of dirty hip hop beats, analog synths, kung fu, spaghetti westerns, animal noises, lsd, sex, violence, soccer, raves, aliens, electro, psychosis, mad scientists, dub, zombies, drums, robots, huge sound systems, vampire witches, a dark sense of humor and a deft ear for a samples. some of my all time favorite music.
