Black Hole

No Static / Automatic
Promising producer Ara-U caused a stir just a few months back with his collaboration with Radioactive Man, ‘Plastic Attack’. ‘Black Hole’ is the first release on his new label No Static / Automatic, and it’s a similarly original and fresh offering. The title cut is slow in tempo, but cuts through thanks to its slicing gated snares and overdriven kicks, which accompany a burrowing analogue bass arpeggio that will sound massive on a soundsystem. ‘Arvo’s Sound Speech’ has a sense of fun and mischief to its marauding b-line and acid, but ‘Disintegrate’ is the real gem here, with its synthpop worthy riff and heavy drums.
