Wasteland All Versus All
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Transparent
An incredibly deep, rich, and dark record, All Versus All takes DJ Scud and I-Sound‘s current fascination with dubstep and grime and refracts it through their musical history. The extreme electronics of Scud's Ambush and I-Sound‘s Full Watts label appear here, as do hints of Scud's sonic collage work with Hrvatski and I-Sound's sweeter side with To Rococo Rot, but the end result is uniquely their own. Alive with sounds-either animal, musical, or mechanical-tracks like the slinky "Enticer," the siren-calling "Himmel," and the unstoppably robotic "Technology" could serve as the soundtrack to a Gene Wolfe novel. Headier than their last release, October, and worth every single sonic second.
