Black Holes, Or How We Lost Solidarity
While Peder Mannerfelt has a history of delivering club-ready techno cuts – admittedly, mostly under the Subliminal Kid alias – his recent releases have been stoutly experimental affairs. This, though, should be considered something of a return to his bombastic dancefloor roots. Slipping out on Will Bankhead and Joy Orbison’s hyped Hinge Finger imprint, the EP is chock full of rave-influenced rollers and throbbing, floor-friendly slammers. Chief amongst these is “Clear Eyes, Full Heart”, a sweaty, full-body jacker blessed with creepy pads, pulsating rave bass, screeching sirens and dub-wise vocal snippets. It’s utterly filthy, in the best possible way, and could well become one of the year’s most ubiquitous tracks.
