Prolaps: Ultra Cycle Pt. 2: Estival Growth

The second of four quarterly Prolaps releases this year is basically the second part of an 8-hour marathon rave. The first hour of this tape is a constant barrage of kick drums and breaks battering over each other, with possessed voices beaming in from another k-hole on tracks like “The Endless Lizard”. There’s shorter tracks and others that pass 10 minutes, but they all rush together and cycle through different patterns at will. The tempo drops a little for “Bottom Out”, but the electro beats plus smashing Amens are still relentless. Later it flows into a more alien space, with a bit more of an energy field surrounding the rhythms, more open atmosphere. It goes through periods of getting more cluttered and ravey and then more detached, then piling the breaks back on like dumping a barrel full of live crabs in a tank. The closing “Saviorself” is a staggering crawl through a radioactive wasteland that you had no clue you were in for when you entered the dance two hours earlier.
