v/a: Replicants 2LP

AnD and Tom DiCicco’s Inner Surface Music presents a 2LP compilation with a quality lineup and lots of hard, battering techno. Some of the tracks are more straightforward and driving, but then some of it gets slower, more distorted, more grimy. O/H piles on a bunch of slurry, snarly punk-ish vocals, and Honzo slows it down to a blown-out industrial thud. Ontal’s “Spasm” strikes the best balance between a steady beat and waves of distortion, and then there’s Hoover synths to rinse everything out. The underrated Sturqen closes the set out with a slower, clanging industrial track which hammers out sparks and then powers down at the end.
