“14 tracks: Nause Techno”

This week we round up 14 pieces arcing across techno, junk electronics and noise. The application of overdriven electronics and throbbing beats is nothing new, really; the early industrialists and power electronics set, even the maddest Chicago types and gabbers have been at it for decades. But in recent times a whole new school has emerged of belligerent bastards taking license to pile on the distortion over pretty much everything. It's in part a political/aesthetic reaction to a decade of glossy, clean-cut house and techno minimalism and also down to more base instincts that simply weren't fully gratified by the noise underground: it can sometimes get a bit boring standing still to 40 minutes of face aching distortion; just add some churning rhythms to the equation and et voila, you've got a f**king party! OK, that's maybe a bit reductive, but if we're going to attribute the rise of 'Nause Techno' to anything, it's a craving for more visceral sensation, whether thru volume or kinaethesia, and there's no arguing that this stuff won't stimulate areas other sounds don't reach. Make of it what you will, but for us, this is some of the most exciting and gratifying music available right now, offering myriad options for expression to any wayward musicians bored by the strictures of established genres.
