The Dark Orchestra
12" Vinyl

Product Description

Proper dancefloor dreadnaughts from Nkisi for Warp’s reheated Arcola label, binding Congolese rhythms with Mittel European hardcore styles as you’ve rarely heard them before.

Landing after Rian Treanor’s opening gambit Contraposition and 2814’s Pillar, this plate catches some serious heat from NON figurehead Nkisi, slicing off a sick full frontal showcase of her signature battering ram rhythms and blend of intense, needle-toothed synths with noxious gloomcore pads.

In effect, these are the latest examples of Nkisi’s unique form of up-to-the-minute, mutant folk music; four mutable grooves that twist the bones of later ‘90s brutalist aerobic mysticism between the Hecate or Christoph De Babalon-esque gloom of The Dark Orchestra and the brittle syncopation of Violent Tendencies on the A-side, and over to the ravenous Cold Rush cavalcade of G.E.O. and her frenetic, pitching stepper, Dark Noise.
