Reality Defence Department

Bulgaria's Petar Tassev has had a pretty remarkable life so far. Growing up listening to industrial bands such as Godflesh, he played in hardcore and metal groups before moving to South Carolina, then Detroit, and immersing himself in electronic music. Releases for Andrea Parker's Touchin' Bass and Legowelt's Strange Life followed, and how he lives in Xiamen, China. This EP contains several gems - 'Mobile Pharmacy' is a mechanistic joy of factory funk and ball bearing boogie, all clanks and boinks, while Norwich native Wax Stag delivers a wonky remix of 'Orthodox Spanking' with drifting Boards of Canada pads, warm bass and surging synth lines.
