Recognized these first few lines from “Death Dimension”  

Last I heard from Ade was that he was hoping it'd be out by November. All I can say is that as far as I know, the album is done.

I was wondering when this would show up on here. I'm kind of surprised that there will be a vinyl release, but I can't complain

you're joking right? Skam know that it's gonna fucking sell

Finally! I had listened to BBC Radio One vhs head special way too many times.

 

On a side note, some of these samples he's using sound really familiar. Just can't seem to remember which movie. I can see this turning into the new Geogaddi.

I love how he makes the 80's feel so sinister and uncomfortable. I think that's where people are picking up on the BOC vibe.

Looking at the titles of this one, Twitch of the Nerve is likely referencing Mario Bava's Twitch of the Death Nerve, Guinea Pig Film must be pointing to the infamous gore series, The Violent Breed is a violent 80's action movie, Brain Damaged =? the absolutely awesome Brain Damage, and then there's The Stuff. That's a quality assortment of sinister B movies

Didn't really like the EP but judging by the sample track and cool references I'm down to give this another shot.

I wonder if he has actually sampled from these films or if these are just points of inspiration. It would seem to obvious to list your sample sources directly like that. Who knows...

 

After seeing Flower of Flesh and Blood and being traumatized for nearly a year, even the track title "Guinea Pig Film" brings back some horrific memories. I need to some how dissociate the track title with the song itself.

Definitely do, I actually hated the EP on first listen but for some reason I kept on going back to it. Within 4 or 5 listens something just clicked and it became one of my favourite releases of last year.

i was gonna say - if you think that the LP sounds vastly different from the EP, then you must be slightly delusional or listening to something completely different

      An unsung hero of mine for the golden era of early IDM.  His releases on Chocolate Industries/SKAM are essential in my book. His album "Lock" never left my car back in '98 (and was one of the finest Ae-inspired albums at the time).  I was just relistening to Lock the other day - and am super hyped/surprised to see that Chris is putting these out. 
      Take a time machine back to '98, sit back, and enjoy.
