DEAD CERT. Records is a label linked to the deathtechno.com project ran by Jack! Who? in the UK. A diverse palette has seen previous releases feature artists including Roberto, Paul Mac, TWR72, Echoplex, Eomac and Petter B.
Italian Francesco De Marzo aka Pyramidal Decode delivers his second DEAD CERT. EP with absolute authority. A highly rated producer, he has also released on labels like Edit Select Records, Abstract Division's Dynamic Reflection, Fernanda Martins' Devotion, Vegim's TMMR and Subsist.
'MF1' opens the EP with a gritty, subterranean techno funk drawing on dub influences and conveying visions of an entrancing, deep sea voyage.
The second track 'Opposite' enthuses with its haunting, hypnotic tones and intense percussion elements of analogue brilliance, with a purist heart and compelling crescendos.
'Function A' is a vigorous brute that wants nothing more than dance floor domination from the enchanting, brooding power and twisted drum rhythms.
Fourth and final on the release is 'Knife' with a thundering kick at its core it also flaunts a masterful, melancholic melody with raw exuberance that tells tales of gothic dreams.
