Silicone Scally Dark Matters
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Satamile
Universally regarded as a trailblazing master practitioner of all things electro, Silicone Scally‘s Dark Matters starts off in routinely familiar territory for Mr. Carl Finlow, featuring taut percussion and swirling synths troweled atop cyclically evolving percussion. As the false sense of security sets in, side B of this two-platter LP harbors an intense realization: these are dark matters indeed. With an increased utilization of growling nu-skool bass, albeit in a distinctly Finlow-ian way, sides C and D of this double-vinyl soundtrack a sensual world of dystopian electro-soul, the stunning center point of this being "Clone Alone." Through eight tracks of stealth dancefloor destroyers, Finlow again brandishes his mastery.
