The Hessle-approved producer previews another track from his forthcoming Caustic View EP for Mute offshoot Liberation Technologies.
Bandshell’s juddering ‘Landfill’ was burlier than much of his previous work, incorporating harsh industrial textures into his grit-flecked sound. By contrast, ‘Perc’ – already heard on Ben UFO’s corker of a FabricLive mix – is much softer and eerier. Like last year’s arresting ‘Dust March’, Bandshell’s latest offers slow-mo techno, steeped in tape fuzz and spotted with pockets of dead space. It is, however, a tighter, prettier piece than its antecedent – a granular reimagining of Sterac’s fluttering mid-1990s techno, infected with some of Lukid’s melancholia.
Caustic View is out on February 11.
