Anthony Parasole 'Infrared Vision' (Dekmantel)
DKMNTL UFO is a Dekmantel festival stage and sub-label specifically designed for intergalactic techno. In stepping up with his debut artist LP, Anthony Parasole sticks to the brief and cooks up 10 tracks of tough, titanium-plated techno that journeys to the edges of the galaxy. Along the way it encounters tribal robot discos, desolate planets inhabited only by machines and mid-air battles between laser-shooting flying saucers and malevolent objects. Always evocative and driven by a visceral sense of rhythm, there’s a robust feel to the hardware-made grooves that never fails to arrest your attention. Far from being an overly brutal affair, though, there’s enough nuance and depth to these tracks to stimulate your mind.
