ILLPHABETIK COM.PILL (Compilation CD by Illphabetik)

American music avantgardist and theorist, Henry Cowell (1897-1965), claimed that rhythms are the noise of music. If anyone should question this theory, take a listen to this first compilation from Danish label Illphabetik. With only a short "Intro" from Bulletdodgers (including the sample of an American woman fussing about half the city listening to jungle music), there is hardly any time to prepare for the first assault of rhythmic mayhem from Danish artist Lisbent with the track "Gettet durch". Established in 2003, Illphabetik is an Internet-label, with an impressive number of mp3-releases, musically operating in a wide variety of electronic styles including Breakcore, IDM, Drum & Bass, Ambient, Hardcore, Electro, Glitch and Minimal. The weight on this compilation though, is put on harsh expressions of breakcore, hardcore gabber techno and sonic aggressions in general, quite often sucked into club-technoid atmospheres. From the distorted power noise track, "Subliminal bass" by Rawclaw across the dark and threatening drone-ambience from Roger 5 to the claustrophobic mix of house techno, bigbeat and harsh noise on Lisbent's "Spasmobotics". It soon comes clear that these artists know what they are dealing with. Other gems come from Meconium with his tracks "(K)illdick" and "Damn this blockhead". The blend of fast breakbeats, 303-Acid synthlines is quite remarkable here. Also Nais' filthy ode to Depeche Mode's track "Personal jesus", the track titled "Personal faeces", is far beyond your average breakbeat-track. Towards the end, comes a great ambient-oriented IDM-track titled "Asaru 5" launched by Leigon. Closing track is the funky track titled "The funk is much better" from Lisbent. Combining kitschy electronic sounds first of all reminiscent of early slot-machine Arcade games, strange samples of voices and 60's one-hit-wonders with ultra-heavy pounding distorted beats thrashed into the listener with maximum velocity, the track from Lisbent serves as a very intense closer to this hyperactive debut-CD-compilation from Illphabetik. All mp3-releases from Illphabetik can be downloaded for free, including playlists and cover-arts. Check out their web site. And check out this excellent debut-sampler it is a great introduction to the label! (NM)
