1. Disposable Income - Rolling machine rhythms spawn acid offspring and a heart pounding race against the financial overlord for independence
2. Moral Decline - Fried beats and electrical bass malfunctions usher in the age of moral decline Acid electro at its darkest hour
3. Sonic Eruptor - Sounds of a failing nuclear device poisoning the sonic atmosphere
4. Unknown Entity is a mutant electronic life form shape shifting and multiplying into a killer percussive organism
For his 5th release and first release on Anti-Gravity Device, Atlanta based producer Mr. Myoplast brings us electro so hot, it would make W. Tecumseh Sherman jealous. The album starts off strong with stereo imaging reminiscent of Avant-Garde king pins "The Residents" and quickly goes into squelchy acid before you even realize you're at a futuristic rave thrown by Roy Batty. Then comes the generous dose of lofi grit in the 808 banger Moral Decline which makes me want to pelvic thrust a wall down, with its deep bass line and syncopated acid meltyness which fades perfectly into the next track giving the feel of a 70's prog rock concept album. The sub bass in "Sonic Eruptor" is ridiculous to say the least and the fuzzed out filter swept drone bass is like a contemporary version of Analog Worms era Oizo. Ending strongly with "Unknown Entity" this release is sure to get you fist pumping with your cat on a Tuesday night after finishing an entire box of wine, I know because it happened to me.

You may have already heard about Ben Wehunt as a label owner, thanks to a handful of successful releases including the essential "Global Systems Vol.1" compilation, and the recent "Departing The Hourglass" album from Analogous Doom published on his own Body Control Records. But Mr. Myoplast is also a talented Atlanta based Electro / Techno producer, author of various E.P.'s on label such like Recycled Plastics or Militant Science just to name but a few.
To plunge into Ben's sound, I highly recommend you his uncompromising debut E.P. titled "The Land Of The Blind" on Anti-Gravity Device. With this fifth outing on AE35's imprint, prepare yourself for an epic journey into raw, acid, and industrial Electro! Rolling "Disposable Income" opens the digital pack with explosive drums over a percussive rhythm. A furious acid line a la Hardfloor progressively appears to smoke your speakers, after a brilliant succession of dark rumbling sub bass coupled with intricate vocals. What an impressive beginning! "Moral Decline", instantly following, sounds like the prelude of an impending doom. Hard pounding beats combine to groovy tones, while a feverish TB303 takes us back into the golden age of Rave music. Acid Electro at its best!
With mental "Sonic Eruptor", the US artist returns to deeper and urban sororities. Synth blips, lasers, and massive 808 bassline are complemented by lush pads and cutting edge soundscapes, surrounded by a solid SciFi atmosphere. Definitely not for the faint of heart. Final cut "Unknown Entity" brings up the rear with syncopated machine grooves, tantalising snare rolls, rising synth, tribal acid vibes, and stomping bass. Classy 303, extremely well crafted beats, partnered up with some dark yet funky sequences sign an extraordinary ride through the world of the Body Control mastermind.
"The Land Of The Blind EP" appears as a serious testimony of Ben's musical versatility and background, ranging from the Machine funk of Kraftwerk and Bambaataa, to the electronicanalogic universe of Aphex Twin! Acting like an enigmatic scientist who experiments evil equations, Mr. Myoplast demonstrates that the association between sub bass and acid produces uncontrolled movements on the dancefloor, making the crowd want to reach the sky. No doubt the best release to date on the Japanese young imprint, no offense to the previous artists including Fleck ESC, Noise&Noise, The Outsider and AE35 himself who already did a great job.
