“Core (Black) / Two Moons”
The rise of industrial electronic aesthetics in Berlin has been one of the healthiest things to happen to the scene there in the 21st century, and it has rippled out to fuel refreshed creativity all around the world. One of the most interesting names in this sphere in Berlin is Prequel Tapes, who start here where 2015’s almost entirely beat-free Inner System album left off. But there’s been a significant step up in production values, and the churn of basslines is surrounded by amazing fine detail in the sparkle and fizz surround the rivers of sound. In particular, the slo-mo “Core (Black),” which does, in fact, bring almost stadium rock-like drums into the mix for its climax, is overwhelmingly pleasurable to immerse yourself in.
