Niccolo Brown There are many people, even some fans of the genre, who maintain that because its parameters are so few and its sound palette so limited, techno's scope for development is severely limited. SHXCXCHCXSH who pushed plenty of boundaries on their mind-expanding 2014 album "Linear S Decoded" have put the doubters to bed once and for all because "SsSsSs ..." so thoroughly subverts the notion of what techno should, might and could be, calling it 'original' would be like calling Donald Trump's thinking 'mildly unconventional'. I'm not going to say any more; you need to hear this slab of totally alien wonder for yourself. Favorite track: SsSsSsSsSsSs.

about

Following on from 2014’s much lauded long player Linear S Decoded, SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs finds the duo pairing trademark stop motion percussion and hyper tensile synthesis with corrosive sound design on a series of warping, maximalist pieces.

As a complete article, the work is wedded to the Avian aesthetic : monochromatic & wrought with tension. It’s powerfully dynamic and thoroughly organic in execution - an unbound, rolling matrix of white noise & wrought iron percussion, replete with disembodied choirs that pan uncomfortably in and out of the sonic hinterland.

Despite dealing with many of the themes that have come to characterise the output of the label : unease & existential paranoia - a sense of loss & isolation; there’s a cathartic - almost redemptive energy contained in the blistering waves of distortion that either intermittently burst into focus, or sit boldly at the forefront of the mix.

At moments it comes tantalisingly close to cacophony - crushed delays feed back in on themselves as tracks build, rolling ominously on towards an as yet unidentified point. With SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs, SHXCXCHCXSH offer some of their most powerfully emotive work yet, heady & burning - that deftly communicates the movement from a position of relative safety to absolute, untethered sonic hyperbole
