Dolor - Subjected - EDLX.041
After teaming up with Sawlin to deliver a series of spacy â€œTextureâ€ works, dubbed â€˜Foreign Awake Pt.1 & Pt.2â€™, Subjected returns to Electric Deluxe this time in searing solo guise. Known for his thundering, no-holds-barred basement style, which until â€˜Foreign Awakeâ€™ was kept purely to his cloistered Vault Series outlet, with â€˜Dolorâ€™ we see the industrial edges polished smooth in this rotund and rolling three-track EP. â€œKruppâ€ opens in typical rumbling Vault fashion that builds into a gargled mechanical reprieve and back again. On the B-side, â€œDolorâ€ applies Subjectedâ€™s rusted signature to a groovy subzero bassline and blue-note melody, the EPâ€™s duly crowned peak-time lead. â€œWuteâ€ then concludes with the sort of venomous hypnotism followers of Electric Deluxe should be familiar with by now, albeit this one has a more scuffed and tarnished appeal. Then for the digital fans, â€œZopiklonaâ€ presents a slightly cleaner, bleepy bonus track with one killer charged drum crescendo.
