Roller: Offed

Drum machines can do so much more damage if they’re programmed in weird patterns and soaked in effects, tearing apart any intentions their inventors may have had. Roller understand this, and their new tape is overloaded and deconstructed all at once, in a way that sounds live and direct. The duo love hyperactive beat patterns, but they also love overheating and burning holes in the audio landscape. The melodies are like violet flames erupting skyward through restless movements, sometimes resembling the timbres of acid techno but a bit more elastic. Somewhat in between industrial crunch and cracked Hausu Mountain mania, with a pinch of juke, Roller’s music always feels heated up and bursting off the grid.
