Ekoplekz/Drvg Cvltvre - snug life 7"

Weirdly, I had this one lined up to post, just as a request came in from friend of the blog m.m asking if I had a copy. Ker-ching!

*Strictly limited copies - just 100 of these have been made* Promising new imprint Snug Life finally kick-start their run of limited releases with a two-track 45 of blasted post-industrial beat-offs by Ekoplekz and Drvg Cvltvre. The label are proposing a series of 7", CD and DVD releases from the likes of Leyland Kirby, Cosmic Dennis Greenridge and Vindicatrix and more in coming months, and if this one is anything to go by, the quality of tunes and curation should be impressive. First up, with 'Like Cattle You Run' Drvg Cvltvre (fka Ra-X) hits a sodden rut of effluent electronics on sounding like KPLR-meets-Madteo deep under the influence of some untested Dutch pharmaceuticals. Flipside Ekoplekz's 'So Allein Replekz' inversion is far more destroyed, extruding your third ear thru flanging, echoic chamber dub noise sounding somewhere between Kevin Drumm and something off Laurel Halo's 'Antenna' tape.

Apparently this is still available from here. I'm amazed that these are hanging around, as I thought that this would fly out. Perhaps it's just a littte bit TOO obscure?

Ekoplekz had an amazing year last year, releasing a slew of brilliantly fractured dubwise electronica with a post-industrial twist accross a bewildering array of labels and formats. I recommend that you get hold of anything - it's all fantastic. Follow his adventures in sound here.
