Bienvenue Beton! A brand-new act making his debut on Pets with two raw, straight-to- the-floor slabs of gritty technoid machine funk. Little is known about him besides the fact hes from Belgium, hes clearly a graduate of the Hardfloor school of knocks, hes invested in some serious analogue gear and he knows his way around a kick-ass groove. Grainy, full-fat 808 funk delivered with no frills or bells or unnecessary detail, Bruxelles pays homage to the citys visceral new beat and EBM roots but with contemporary muscle and a titanium jacking groove almost Wink-like hypnosis to the acid as it strips back. Voice 64 continues this theme of stark leftfield savagery with a simple pounding kick, a distorted decaying bassline and a cannon-like riff that builds on itself, encouraging the snare-rattled percussion to do the same. Its primal tendrils brought together with a laugh so demonic it could make the devil blush, once again its another physical, concentrated piece of frank, honest techno. One brand new artist, two stone cold constructions, you can bet on Beton appearing on Pets again in the near future.
