Boomkat Product Review:
Demdike Stare return with their first album since 2012’s Elemental, a feral, loose-limbed and angular rave odyssey wrecking Dancehall and Jungle templates via found sounds, Ambient and exotic spaces.
Wonderland plays the full breadth of the duo’s wide open aesthetic, taking their Testpressing series of dancefloor lashes – issued on 12” between 2013-2015 – as the diving board for an innovative, reverie-like album forming a parallel dancefloor narrative where the spirits of mid ‘90s jungle and digital dancehall are made plasmic, malleable, and syncretised with industrial and ambient techno sound design.
Rooted in record collecting and the art of DJing, and in line with Demdike’s atypical style and pattern, Wonderland veers across styles and temporalities, forming wormholes between Hardstyle and submerged jungle in the curtain-raiser, Curzon, and going in like Slimzee slicing up grime dubs with jungle in the crackden atmosphere of Animal Style, whereas the eleven minute Hardnoise catches them at full stretch, tumbling from head-rinsing noise to a dank, sublow techno mission framed by unsettling ambience somewhere between Prurient’s Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement episodes and a mutant variant of classic Exotica, before coughing you up someplace else.
At the album’s epicentre, FullEdge (eMpty-40 Mix) obliterates distinctions between dancehall and techno as you’ve never heard, an edit that re-laces their formerly mutually exclusive ligature in a belly-tightening and brilliantly messed-up new mutation, before Sourcer prangs out like a cyborg calibrating itself to ragga jungle arrhythmia, and the psychoacoustic nose drip of Fridge Challenge dissipates into the ‘static thizz of Overstaying at the LP’s perimeter, like some DJ Sprinkles cut paused at mid-flow and delayed, re-shaped into a tense burner.
It’s probably the most enjoyable and loose-limbed hour of music in their catalogue, or that you’ll likely hear in these weird, angst-ridden times.

Shapednoise ‎– Deafening Chaos Serenity


Staggering return of Italian noise daemon Nino Pedone a.k.a. Shapednoise; flanked by Roly Porter, Rabit and Emanuele Porcinai for a head-rinsing concept suite inspired by the Serenity
Manifesto of Eric Burton (Rabit) and Francesco Birsa Alessandri ov Haunter Records – a sort of poetic inversion of Luigi Russolo’s futurist manifesto, The Art of Noises (1913), updated for 21st c.
politics and sound-fields.
Cementing a stark reminder of noise music’s subversive, contemplative power when given proper context, Deafening Chaos Serenity is about finding space for reflection at the eye of the storm, and about grasping the visceral sensation and metastasising madness of reality in all its overgrown, apocryphal ambiguity. It’s about learning to work within in noise’s wildly unpredictable parameters, rather than attempting to negate them.
Just as with this album’s predecessor, Different Selves, and his work in The Sprawl trio with Mumdance and Logos, collaborative energy continues to generate some of Shapednoise’s
strongest work across Deafening Chaos Serenity, from the fundamental conceptual impetus supplied by Burton & Alessandri’s manifesto, to the absorbingly visceral manner with which he puts it into effect.
In four of the five tracks, oppositional, if sympathetic forces generate the necessary friction needed to look beyond and suppose new forms, structures. In Motion & Depth or the bleached electro-acoustic structures of Delusional Path he dissolves the tension of Emanuele Porcinai’s strings into a syntax of ecstatic physics, whilst the subatomic diffusion of Resistance to a Harmonious Vision with Roly Porter speaks to a experience of luscious sensory overload, and in Pulling at the Seams of Existence, the record’s most tumultuous shredding out loud/quiet, violent/peaceful distinctions, he and Rabit embrace the discord of uncertainty with unflinching vision, almost like Turner tied to the mast and facing a stormy future head-on.
