Ben Mono


Nailing the Madtech sound like an absolute boss here is Ben Mono, previously of Munich's venerable Compost Records, and latterly unleashing deepness through Gomma and Strictly Rhythm. Title track 'Why?' is a pulsating, serpentine groove, all metallic percussion and off-beat stabs. It's solid, as is Russian producer Xandi's scything, occasionally acidic version. Over, 'Rather Kill Me' brings the garage, wobbling its way through a lean four minutes, delivering all that's needed and nothing more. Bravo.
