Sote: 10in04 10"

Sote: 10in04 10″

14 years ago, Sote released “Electric Deaf”, one of the most brutal, alarming records Warp ever put out. He put out a few other records, including an album on Sub Rosa which was more in the modern classical realm. Lately he’s been releasing albums on labels like Opal Tapes and Morphine Records. This 10″ actually contains 2 early unreleased tracks from the ’90s. “Neuroenhancer” is a dark, distorted techno banger with pulverized melodies shining through the near-gabber blasts. “In Music I Trust” is evil drum’n’bass which isn’t quite broken enough to become breakcore, but it’s plenty distorted and chaotic. A voice keeps insisting “everything’s gonna be fine tonight”, but you’re not sure whether to believe him or not. Think of this as a timebomb that took 20 years to finally detonate.
