Chafik Chennouf – Dual Aspect (OPAL114). The lumbering death drops of “Ferroequinologie” set stage for an piece of maximalism against a pure black background. The sample, originally taken from The Ha Dance by Masters at Work is ubiquitous with ballroom music and the dancing of vogue/dramatics.

Chennouf pries the waveform open and combs it into deadly attack while legs and back cripple. It’s a visitation of this sonic fingerprint away from the more common house music forms it’s attributed to. The sonic strength, the violence of the suicide drop and the war cry of the sound allowed to exist in a hyper-dimensional space. Credit: Opal Tapes
