With The United States amidst it's very own identity crisis we think it's time at SQL to change things up a bit. New music from The New Deal Reps isn't easy on the ears and we like to envision these tracks much like you'd view a rabid gorilla in a tiny pink dress.. busting at the seems, teeth barred, foaming from the mouth, and coming at your neck.
False Flat provides us with a huge soundscape that moves fast .. blistering percussion mixes with a warm electro-tinged bassline while scattering drum programming keeps the listener intrigued throughout the tune.
Academic takes an interesting twist on dancefloor-aimed techno and glitches it out. A steady pulse is interrupted by 16th notes that are muted while a nice banging snare drum pitter-pats its way into the groove. This is a roller - difficult to tame but could definitely find its way into a packed floor.
Demongay takes us down on a lavish take for 'Grater'. Forget isolated processing and clean crisp sound design .. this track is really washed out and can really fuck up the floor around 4am given the right context. Cinematic moments paired with true blasted-out grimeyness really set this track apart.
Technology of Oppression really brings to life the ever-present Dystopian influence we see a lot of in the techno world. Instead of foresight into what this future would look like this track seems to bring to life dystopian aspects of our own post-industrial society and makes the listener confront them. It's a new age as acid melds with the deterioration of midwest industrialization.
