A Vision Of Love - Lessons In Hate (Part One)
A close friend of the label debuts under an anonymous alias for Avian’s ninth outing, which explores underground Techno’s relationship with Industrial and S&M.
There’s more to A side Hate 2/6 than meets the listener on first play. While worn drums lead the recording, subtle sequences and long verb tails sit low in the mix, warping uncomfortably at a subterranean level. A furtive bleep joins the arrangement midway through, growing slowly more invasive as the track progresses, building the undeniable sense of unease that characterises the artist’s work. B side Black & Blue (For You) makes no secret of it’s subject matter - steely percussion drenched in reverb whips and clangs, while an aggressive off beat bass sequence sits pretty at the front of the mix, all distorted dark energy.
