Truncheon Cadence Part One

It’s true that some of the most innovative recent electronic music has come from outsiders and James Donadio doesn’t fit the typical techno bill. Previously a noise rocker, his loose and fast approach to arranging is refreshing. On one hand there’s the dense drums of ‘Unanswered’, while by contrast ‘Led Up Garden Paths’ is a frazzled, droning affair and ‘This Whole Affair’s So Fucking Unfair’ is a gnarly, broken beat workout, its punishing drums and nausea-inducing subs introducing a level of unease rarely experienced in techno.
