Karamika: BAU002

Here we find Karamika continuing their chaotic exploration of raw, obsessive kraut and industrial motifs.

Get strange.

Shifted: Arrangements in Monochrome (Part 1 & 2)

Shifted’s commitment to relentless, uncompromising sound is distinct, and as these EPs prove, the results are thrilling. There is a slight sense that they’re serving as a transition to the next Shifted full length, but their clarity and intensity is a reminder of the potential still held in dark, hard, techno.
