looped for pleasure / i monster

those of you opting to order the print / vinyl bundle of the latest issue of electronic sound get to grab yourselves a split 7 inch featuring a brace of tracks from a collective of Sheffield’s finest ambassadors of future sound. Upon this double a sided disc, first up comes ‘city lights’ by looped for pleasure, a track that finds Cabaret Voltaire founder Stephen Mallinder in studio cahoots with former Screaming Trees dudes Messrs Maloney and Swancott to cook up some nifty shadow playing and shape cutting subtronic techno dub with if anything neatly joins the grainy dots separating the Cabs’ ‘seconds too late’ and the Crackdown’ and into the bargain nodding along the way to a c.81 era Clock DVA. Over to the flip, the equally legendary I monster serve up ‘Arp (long live the avatar)’ – a remix of ‘Alan R Pearlman and the ARPiological Exploration of the Cosmos’, an obvious nod to the founder of Arp technologies, this one relocates your head space straight back in the late 70’s – a time of space age disco with this not surprisingly an imagining of some secret French futurist collaboration between Space and Jean Michel Jarre. In addition to the vinyl, the bundle also gets you access codes to a free 13 track download ‘made in sheffield’ featuring a plethora of tracks from the likes of they must be Russians, i’m so hollo, vice versa and more……further mentions later in the week……
