Vorpal An Incomplete Guide to Vorpal Music
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: CockRockDisco
Vorpal (Andy Kozloski) exhales breakcore rhythms that remind me of when my cat beats me to a bloody pulp. The attacks veer from lazy swipes to ninja assaults that make my arm's scars look like a Pollock. True to Jason Forrest‘s CockRockDisco name, our man finds great funk in epilepsy. "You Treacherous Girl" gives a 23rd century gloss to frustrated and mutinous beats, "November014" sounds like Venetian Snares sabotaged by a remote control and the oddly addictive "Irrevocable" is a delicate string ballad on the verge of implosion. Kozloski well trumps the IDM cliché of gentle music boxes playing with scattershot beats.
