Following on from a successful pair of pressings Belfast based house music imprint Computer Controlled has released its next dosage of acid electronics – ‘Untimely Emotions’ EP courtesy of Gavin Guthrie aka TX Connect.
With Mark Forshaw and Chris Moss Acid laying the groundwork for the label’s future outlay it is safe to say in a much unapologetic manner Computer Controlled is back with more of the same upfront 303 jams. The whole EP has a retroactive mindset with its percussion, bassline and playfulness but all the while maintaining a progressive attitude – with its layering of varying sounds seamlessly over one another on ‘Breaking’, or even ‘Crystal Clear’s digitalised bleeps transcending the tone to a more science fiction locality. As a whole the production has a very physical feel which is felt throughout each piece and in particular on ‘Durable Chin’ that begins with a simple DIY kickdrum followed by a crescendo of skilfully manufactured snares and bass. The most driving track ‘Not Here’ has a engrossing spooky aesthetic making it for a very interesting track to be set apart from the rest of the EP.
With acid based compositions finding yet another resurgence through outlets like Creme Organization, Tabernacle, Mathematics and Lunar Disko, Computer Controlled has most definitely made a case to be considered as another important player in the area of abrasive analogue music
