Coming in from the depths of Berlin's underground electronic music scene is the third release of the Subsonic label which is associated with and an offspring of the Yaya23 record store. On the A-side of the limited to 300 copies pressing we'll come across our old friend Dr. Walker who's teaming up with Omsk Information to serve "Only Here", a dark and grinding underground Techno affair touching borders of both reverb heavy Dub-influences as well as Alien Industrial for the darkest hours of the night. On the flip we see St. Tetik open with "Warning This Is Loud Music", a ravey, muscular Techno effort well-appealing to all those appreciating the pounding, ecstatic and surely EBM-influenced sound of Terrence Fixmer, The Hacker or Vitalic before "Sweet Dystopia" takes us to a sphere of decent electronic Phonk where a fusion of Broken Techno and twisted, wonky Electronica meets with blurred out, slightly oriental-sounding guitar licks with a bluesy, post fallout feel, Acid-reminiscing bleeps and heavy, squarewave basslines for latenight dancefloor destruction. Good stuff, this is!
