Back at it again, taking the true essence of the “jacking" sound of Chicago house and putting it’s own stamp on it is what Obsolete Music Technology has done with their new 12" entitled, “Volatile." Warbling, wobbling, distorting, sinisterly acidic basslines abound is the best way to describe this release! For dance floors only! You have been warned!
“Volatile" starts off with some 707 drums intro and then fading in, is this tripped out, bubbling bass sound that sends you off a cliff! Just when you think that’s all to the track; dark, melancholic pads comes in for added atmos-FEAR! Rounding out the A-side is “Killin," with it’s 2 acid style basslines, one sounding at a high octave and the other at a lower octave. Riffs playing separately sounding great, but when played together, there is something slightly, mentally off.
On the B-side, "Broken Siren" is high energy! 808 tom drums bringing the funky low end while a short, electronic piano lick drenched in warm, fuzzy, flange effect. Setting it off is a decayed sine wave, mimicking an actual alarm sound. Lastly, “Electric Current" best describe this distorded acid bassline and its tweaking filter and resonance controls over jacking 808 drums.
