Snow Bone follows up his acclaimed debut Remote Viewer EP with a warehouse-shaking 12" for the Lobster Theremin Black Label series.
Having set the tone with red-lining techno cuts such as the relentless 'Remote Viewer' and EBM-aping 'SHO 5537', this time Snow Bone's on a much more straight up tip. Title track 'Mystic Vision' has been doing the rounds for a while now and finally gets the A1 it deserves, constantly building up layers of percussive euphoria until it explodes with a ferocious hat onslaught. 'Dutch Hater' is the weirder older brother, sounding like Terrence Dixon at his loopiest and modular-tinged best, but fried to within an inch of it's life and drenched in waves of scourged acid.
On the flip Snow Bone brings back more of that balls-out, rhythmic autism that is likely to become his staple. 'Lost In Machine Code' is a rollicking coast through tripped-out, smokey basements filled with young hacker wunderkid's, smoking way too much weed and with hella modems and data-hubs blinking, twitching and bleeping into infinite. Finally, Black Label debutant Manse takes up the reigns on remix duties, recalling the zombie-hospital darkness he achieved on his Opal Tapes release to conjure up a relentless drive through a deserted downtown LA.
