Ron Morelli: Spit

Ron Morelli: Spit

First album from the owner of Brooklyn-based house label L.I.E.S. Very dirty lo-fi techno inspired by paranoia, stress, and monotony. Some of the tracks (“Modern Paranoia”, “Crack Microbes”, “Fake Rush”, “No Real Reason”) are sludgy, basic monotonous techno jammed out on primitive equipment, but then there’s abrasive industrial garbage-dump experiments like “Sledgehammer II”. “Director Of…” has an acid bassline that sounds like it could turn into an acid house stormer, but instead of a beat dropping, there’s a bunch of blurry dialogue samples. “Slow Drown” ends the album with a tense loop repeating for 3 and a half minutes, not changing much but feeling like a pool of some sort of liquid that could slowly drown you.
