Signal - Robotron

From Boomkat:
"Supergroups rarely work out, but this head-to-head sees the minimal sound artists losing their respective attention to detail and heading out into a messy world of robot funk. Recorded in 2001-2006 in Berlin, Tokyo and Chemitz (the East German birthplace of Raster Noton) we see the three musicians taking hold of their considerable combined talents, and far removed from the icy minimalism you would have expected to hear from the three in the past, this is as pounding and ear destroying as Pan Sonic in their prime. Rough sampled textures are chopped and layered rhythmically beneath pounding kick drums and cyclic high pitched synthesizer tones, leaving Bretschneider's token bass frequencies room to make up the heavy bottom end. Somewhere in between the warehouse pounding of Chain Reaction-era Monolake and the tempered minimal headphone listening we all came to expect from Alva Noto, Signal is a brutal listening experience, best heard loud to the point of discomfort. In fact I can imagine this music played on gigantic stacks of speakers, the frequencies booming out across thousands of eager heads - it's just so immense. Those of you enamoured with the work of any of the artists involved, or with classic Sahko or Hardwax emissions really need to check this without delay. Immense and totally intense music."
