Sian is now becoming recognised as a truly unique figure in electronic music. His list of aficionados reads like a whos who of contemporary dance culture, from Luciano, Loco Dice, Ricardo Villalobos, Steve Bug, Carl Craig and M.A.N.D.Y to Sasha, John Digweed and James Zabiela. While Funk DVoid is well established in the techno fields, with a string of successes over the years (Jack Me Off, Bad Coffee Emotional Content, not to mention Diabla) & praised as an inspiration by a list of luminaries that includes Andy Cato (Groove Armada), Tom Middleton and Nick Warren. With such impressive CVs anything this pair produces is a sure-fire player.
The strikingly titled A Wasp in a Wig grabs the attention with sub-heavy, rumbling bass and wobbly synths, pierced by a very much wasp-like buzz. That buzz sends the track into a spiral before everything kicks back in with the track climaxing in a whirl of dark sound.
A Scream Dressed in Feathers offers a dark musical vision with deep bass melting into a range of swelling warehouse sounds. These industrial textures progress in wonkiness throughout and build tension with their distorted tones.
This is going to make you freak.
