The fifth release on Violet Poison is a V.A. of fresh artists working in the camp of experimental and extreme techno. The first artist presented on the compilation is O/H, Ontario Hospital, the power electronics project from the Canadian duo Richard Oddie, half part of Orphx, and Dave Foster, better known as Teste, the legendary Probe producer. Here they strike with a powerful industrial track enhanced by highly distorted vocals and an intubated lowfrequency sequence. Then Irish producer Sunil Sharpe, already known for his productions on Blawan’s label and on the Black Sun Records imprint, provides “Ground Skull”, an ultrasinister but powerful yet tune with sinister bells and some delirious vocals taken from the crime scene.
On the flip, Belgrade’s duo Ontal continue the thrilling plot with a perfect and balanced combination of hungry brokenbeat Techno and Cyberpunkish ambient drones, while CSA, the new ambient project of Berlinbased producer Ascion, provides the closing “Overture”, a cacophonous, postkraut hymn full of nautical and underwater esotericism.
