A new producer on the scene, i.d. mixes moody, post-industrial ambience with twisted synth-driven electronica, resulting in a sinister-yet-weirdly-danceable digital answer to post-punk – the atmosphere of which is nailed absolutely in his Clash mix.
The opener, ‘Black Antlers (Where’s Your Child?) – a gloomed-up cover of acid house act Bam Bam, by seminal industrial experimentalists Coil – is a twisted stunner, writhing between a noise track and a dancefloor cut. Retro synth fetishist Com Truise then makes a welcome appearance, followed by some classic New Order. Also included are the mighty Killing Joke with their punky new wave anthem ‘Love Like Blood’ which fades into a droney number from the irreplaceable beast that is Throbbing Gristle, climaxing the downbeat goodness perfectly.
