Various Artists No Space for Dogma
- Words: Rob Geary
- Label: K2O
In just two years, K2O has presented IDM from artists as far-flung as Moscow, Berlin, Brooklyn and Colorado. Sadly, geographic diversity doesn't translate into musical diversity, as much of No Space for Dogma runs together into a midtempo soup. It's up to TenEcke to wake us up with a splash of cold water called "The Living Ice Age," which weaves together real cymbals with blatantly fake drum machine hits, while ominous guitars and bass scratch and bleep away. It's supremely creepy and cold, and along with Kareem's dark, piano-driven headnodder "Beirut," provides a center to a somewhat meandering collection.
