As statements of intent go, naming your record For Rave Use Only takes some beating. The latest self-released outing from BLD does exactly what it says on the tin though, lining up four slices of acid techno weaponised for cavernous warehouse spaces and dungeon basements. Gesturing towards the extraterrestrial with its melodies, it would be safe to assume that opening track ‘A51’ is making a less-than-subtle reference to Area 51. But titles aside, it’s our pick of the bunch, setting out a blistering framework somewhat tempered by the warm glow emanating from a radiant arsenal of eerily undulating synth lines.
For Rave Use Only is out January 22nd on BLD Tape Recordings – pre-order direct from the label.
