LOW 023: Adjust – Release The Sharks

As 2010 draws to a close, Low Res Records makes one last shot at the buzzer with a veritable milestone of mayhem, the 23rd enigma in the shape of a new and long overdue DJ Adjust record.
‘Release The Sharks’ is a four tracker of abusive speaker therapy constructed in the spirit of recreational headbanging most would call haptic technology for heshers.
Possessing the demonstrative power of potential that pokes at the ear pupils, the new Adjust record is a leaning tower of rhythm inconsequentials that cast a dark shadow over the deliberate composition of controlled chaos. A study in pure acceleration from the opening track ‘Eveready/9-Lives’ and it’s nod to Frances Tipton Hunter and his black cat, to the track ‘Deux’ which draws subtle influence from early Fischkopf releases taking cues from industrial appliance rhythms that swell into monstrous episodes of hi-fidelity gate crashing.  Distorted electronic kick drums translate into rarified air violence and simultane
ously unleash the Kraken bass blasts. Zeus and his harem of honeys would be proud. A true modern Midwest exercise in reticent aggression. Varying tempos of grindfunk sonically spread over four tracks of fortified ass-kick. This is
popular music for the future prolific and stratopunk pioneers of tomorrow… delivered today.

Out exclusively through Praxis on Sept. 27 on 12″ vinyl and mp3
Out on general release through all good record stores and distros on Oct. 11!

Rancorous Records, Barcore, Illphabetik, Meganeural

Raxyor aka Jeffrey Penton, hailing from New York, He began to experiment with electronic music back in 1999 Producing electronic noise, which landed him a few gigs local New York and in Canada. About 2005 Raxyor stepped beyond the realm of “inspired” and in to the kingdom of inspired genius. Raxyor kicks out intricate, complex beats arrayed in fashions which you cannot predict any more than you help enjoying. He describes his style as “Hyper Jungle, Splatter, Rave’n’Bass fused with Classic Dubstep and D&B roots. ” There are two musicians whose work has surprised, delighted and amazed me at every turn: Mozart and Raxyor. The former is dead. The latter has contributed to a dozen albums released by ten record labels over the past five years With Rancorous Records his main Label from NY, Meganeural, Illphabetik, Yomi, Day Of The Droids, Auricle Media, Hive Records, No-FI Studios, Apogsasis and more!
After a couple extensive years of touring in Europe and the UK, Constantly working to further experiment and improve his production skills, Raxyor has been able to stand miles apart from most of the crowd and really push the sonic boundaries of drum and bass fused with hyper jungle and seasoned well with ballistc bass lines. Switching from razor sharp editing to wild splattered destruction, Raxyor takes a serious and deadly approach to his work.
Raxyor made his debut appearance at The Lucky Cat in Brooklyn NYC w/ Xanopticon and Slutmachine. Since then he has performed in Canada, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Germany, the Ukraine, Norway, Scotland, Lithuania, Spain and various cities around the United States.
Playing alongside some of the best in the underground Raxyor has proven to the masses why he has been put on some of the best line ups across the world, sharing the stage with Otto Von Schirach, Luke Vibert, Ebola, DJ Hidden, Rotator, DJ Scotch Egg, Enduser and many more!.

Babyshaker [UK]

Babyshaker is a producer from deep in the scottish countryside. With very little else to do other than accidentally run over
rabbits with his car he started producing in 2004. His sound ranges all the way from the deepest dubstep through to a raging side of jungle rarley heard and all the way out to some of the hardest breakcore sounds around. More recently has been focusing on more dancfloor friendly bangers: “Im becoming mroe interested in making people move with me than want to mvoe away from me”. Babyshaker’s live performances involve slick mixing of original material, large amounts of FX manipulation using home made Reaktor algorhythms and even larger amounts of eardrum abuse and full on improvised mashups – anything goes. Babyshaker has been playing shows and wrecking audiences for a number of years now, he has played all throughout europe and beyond, and has shared the stage with acts such as Xanopticon,
Bong Ra, Ebola, Ladyscraper, Pisstank, FFF and Duran Duran Duran. Babyshaker has released on Rancorous Records,
OXO-Unlimited, Ideation Records and also runs Meganeural Records with Hoonboy.

Istari Lasterfahrer [DE]

Istari Lasterfahrer is a Breakcore producer from Hamburg, Germany. His works belong to the most extreme and experimental in the whole genre. He also made music under the names of Error23 and Demodulizer. Together with Repogrrl he found the label Sozialistischer Plattenbau in 1999. _________________
