about

Having broken the barrier for murky skewed house with his 2014 white label 'A Place Called Ballacid', Hungarian scene founder S Olbricht returns with a full album on Lobster Theremin that channels his distinct brand of thumping, sludgy techno, weaving through repetitive drone-laden ambient and Hague-esque escape soundtrack house.

'For Perfect Beings' is a sound-palette tour de force, picking 'n' mixing tempos and tonal balances that shift throughout each track and side of vinyl. Which strangely starts on a 12" LP slab and ends with a pseudo 'bonus' 10" two track experiment.

Openers 'Astrid' and 'Blambestid' form a pair of progressive chugging rollers; journey tracks from the interstellar void that shift and glisten and singe under the gamma rays of a neutron star, finally collapsing back in to the void.

'Fadaisco' meanwhile picks up the baton for breakneck Legowelt-ian techno and rightly adds another ten layers of intensity, building to a relentless, rapturous and revolution-inspiring euphoria.

There's a brief respite from the ongoing rebellion soundtrack, firstly in the form of 'Gesnaria', a short but stuttering drift into a shrouded lake of lucid memories. An alternative snippet of the Solaris soundtrack that perfectly blends ambiguous melodic elements with an ongoing confused emotional state.

'Rien' follows this pattern of low slung blurriness by taking a dragging mammoth low end and dredging it under looping and morphing samples that clatter and ascend to a more controlled climax that signals a transition to peace from the frantic madness that peppered the album's early tracks.

Stepping onto the conceptual physical 10" side of the album, containing the "fast" and "slow" versions of 'Ovacrwded', these two tracks bear more than a tempo difference. The fast version is birthed in the womb, with the emanating warmth of rumbling subs accompanied by heavily shelved and scuffed percussive artefacts. The slow version is a new beast entirely, latching a haunting, wandering high synth line to the throbbing, distorting mid and low range, that barely seem to separate throughout the entirety of the tracks, scrunched together in a cooperative analogue rhythm.
