The Death of Rave are gassed to present the 2nd vinyl release of roiling, computerised No Wave by exciting pan-European duo, N.M.O. Under the mantra - As Strict As Possible - their ‘Tropicalyptic Excursions’ combine militant snares and amorphous SuperCollider shapes in disciplined dancefloor arrangements, p’raps best compared with a melted hybrid of Powell’s cranky engines and EVOL’s mutant rave signals dosed with Low Jack swagger.

They’re dead strange, semi-organic dance creatures, stripped to the bare essentials of shifty rhythm and biting tone, bristling with a concentrated energy that belies their hypnotic, body- scattering effect on the ‘floor.

Without resorting to overly masculine tactics or conventional structures, they carve a path from kinky, pendulous percussion and grinding globular bass squelch laced with computer gremlins in the title track, to the bashy, percolated jag of ‘Talkingabouttalking’ with its metal-tearing build-up, and over to the whooping industrial bounce of ‘Zaragoza Variations’, cut loud and clattering for the B-side by Matt “The Alchemist” Colton.

Like the duo’s striking ‘Nederlandse Maatschappij Ontwikkeling’ 12” and ‘Dominant Akkord’ cassette for Barcelona’s Ano`mia label, this 12” is a refreshing inversion and diversion of dancefloor strictures - getting down with a wickedly raw, awkward and freaky rave flex. If you ever get
the chance, make sure to check their aerobic live shows for a radical take on contemporary live electronic performance.
