Segv/Appian: split 12"

Segv/Appian: split 12″

The first Sly Fox record, released in 2012, was a split EP between Appian and Segv, but on slyfox002, the tables have turned and now Segv has the A-side. Segv’s “Janky” is shimmering dub techno, with some sort of ominous voice submerged in the mix, and a driving rhythm which makes the track seem to go by in about half of its 9-minute runtime (unless Discogs is wrong). Appian’s “Re:shell” on side B is more lo-fi sounding, with straightforward drum machine beats (which get more heavy on hi-hats as the track progresses) and simple, Detroit-y chords repeating and dancing around the track. Not much to it, but it does it right.
