Some really nice old-school sounding dark beats from your favorite label. Skam has been killing it lately (between this and Fear Ratio).

 

Bleep writeup:

 

https://bleep.com/re...eak-before-make

 

Break Before Make is the debut album from Manchester-based Ghanaian/Russian/German artist AFRODEUTSCHE. A shining example of Skam Records doing what they do best, delivering some of the North of England's finest industrial leaning electro.

Currently holding down a regular must check NTS show and in recent years performed live on bills alongside some of Detroit's finest, Dopplereffekt and C2. AFRODEUTSCHE's debut album arrives in low key style via the legendary Northern powerhouse Skam. Musically, Break Before Make builds bridges between the Detroit techno and electro cornerstones of influence, yet this is music that views the motor city and Manchester in a similar way to the early Modern Love x Basic Channel Berlin connex. Parallels are drawn between the vast open landscapes of the spaces between both the D and MCR with a cold selection of funky radar bleep techno pulses. Beamed in with a joint love of UR, Drexciya and Mills but also the more electronic end of Factory Records, Marcus Intalex's deep liquid DNB and the early trouble at mill material of Pendle Coven and Andy Stott's Unknown Exception.

Break Before Make is a killer debut album form a name we are sure to be seeing more of in the future, for now, let's keep our fingers crossed for some vinyl on this one...

Lol, also why isn't this available in the Skam Bleepstore but you still can get it from the Bleep.com proper?

Anyway, this is lush as fuck. Skam releases seem a few and far between lately but always top quality.
