Project Dark

Excited by Gramophones Volume 4


Leave it to some Brits to figure out a way to not only press records made out of chocolate, hair, and wood, but to play them! Project Dark is best described as a strange combination of noise, terror, and breakbeat science. At first, I was puzzled. I was worried I’d somehow fried my stereo to the point that it would only produce strange guttural groans and high-pitched pops and squeals. As time progressed, I began to hear this beast taking shape. It crawled out of my speakers, up my legs and chest, until finally managing to pry open my mouth. At that moment, I was in ecstatic static. I couldn’t make heads or tails of it, but I knew I liked Project Dark. Then they bashed out my teeth with a crowbar and tended to the wounds with surgical precision. I can only compare it to Kinder Atom set for high-vibration, or Autechre with bunny rabbits grazing on the vinyl. Try it on for size, because “Black Rubber Elvis” and “Spongers… ” alone are essential for anyone claiming to love the cutting edge of electronica. Invisible Records, P.O.
