The first World Unknown 12” of 2012 is a double header of throbbing midtempo techno and as with all World Unknown releases from now on both tracks have been mastered for vinyl from ½ inch tape for maximum sonic excellence.
On Side W Semtek from Don’t Be Afraid joins forces with his afterparty alter-ego Chardonnay and a certain rather well known OG hipster poet on ‘Tacos For Dinner’, an extremely modern and massively psychedelic trip into the outer mind. This clicking, bleeping, fizzing and throbbing ten minute excursion has been road tested from acetate by Andy Blake for many months and always sends the club somewhere very special and ever so slightly scary.
On Side U Scott Fraser delivers ‘Remains The Same’. It’s a notch or two less pacey than side w but no less powerful or psychedelic. It’s earthy vibe and pounding, throbbing tones have been part of Andrew Weatherall’s sets for some time now and it’s not hard to see why. When the full percussion finally comes crunching in like a breakbeat on top of the ever-present heavyweight bassline it’s disco pandemonium time.
In short, possibly the best 12” so far from WU. Let’s see where 2012 takes the label.
