Stingray 313

Misinformation Campaign

Trust

9.0
Stingray became known as Drexciya's tour DJ, but 'Campaign' confirms that he now inhabits a universe of his own making. Favouring pacy electro rhythms, the burning acid and sonar bleeps on 'Herd Instinct' and wildly discordant synths of 'Street Theatre' sound like the collapse of modern civilisation. There is some relief on 'Who's Watching The Watchers?', but the vocal claiming that "Spying on 30 million people, this wasn't part of my job description", is a reminder that electronic music can be a potent political force.
