October & Borai - Necessary Force / Nine Tomorrows

Happy Skull

Regular price
Regular studio sparring partners October and Borai rekindle their ongoing partnership for hometown label Happy Skull, eschewing the conventions of club-ready house and techno in favour of two decidedly dark Industrial interpretations.

2015 was a particularly big year for both producers. Borai hit the big time thanks to the two-fingered salute of revivalist rave anthem “Anybody From London” on Hotline Recordings, while October rightly received universal acclaim for his debut album on Skudge, Black Body Radiation.

A-side “Necessary Force” echoes the jackin’ throb of classic EBM, fusing titanium tuff percussion, aggressive analogue bass and a mind bending breakdown to create a hefty slab of hard wired funk. In comparison, flipside “Nine Tomorrows” is a more atmospheric excursion. Instinctively paranoid, it peppers a throbbing machine groove with cascading melodies and horror-influenced electronics to mesmerising effect.
