Cleveland’s James Donadio aka Prostitutes checks back into Diagonal with the belligerent para- techno boost of ‘Ecstasy, Crashing Beats and Fantasy’, one year on from the dirtbag ‘Shatter and Lose’ 10” [DIAG005]. Its four gaping cuts follow the red-ticking energy levels of recent outings for Night School, Spectrum Spools and Mira, dissipating heavy drug fug in favour of synapse-sparking moto-roil and blistered Hardwave funk — from entry to exit wound.

Downtown, ‘Crawl In From Broadway’ relishes machine rigidity, hammering out workshop percussion latticed with searing acid lines and wry, whining drones to set the ‘floor’s teeth on edge. ‘Dollars To Deutschmarks’ walks the walk with leather-bound friction and Linn-style snare crack, fiercely pumped on mutant Mid-West funk.

Uptown, there’s scant respite to be found in the militant two-note bass and drum momentum of ‘Lovers Run Camp Africa’, with its menacing vocal stabs and bruxist synth climax. ‘Side Effects Of Living’ expends shocking electro energy in what might just be Donadio’s fiercest dancefloor assault to date.

This is pure street terror laced with swerve, and set to indelibly scrawl Prostitutes’ name all over the modern mutant underground.
