Comment: I am back again to another 17-minute track (day before yesterday I reviewed Pollux`s Naked Lights) though the recent issue under a resident artist within the Proc-Records` discography (proc003) is more based on spoken word samples accompanied by slowly slinging rhythms. The former element is based around the snippets from gangster motion pictures. //”Where is my fucking money?/I don`t know!/Where is my money?/It is in the box/I am talking here not you/Fuck you! If you could open up your mouth then you could shut up/Fuck it yourself!”/Your fucking phony/You get me out of here//. Indeed, it is a dialogue between a young layer and an experienced mob who is arrested and insists to get out of jail. And there is up shooting in the ending part as well though those sordid speech moments and ill-omened sonic themes and nervous broken beat and retro-futurist haunting electronica and orchestration blended appearances are at times jettisoned for more flamboyant, just very lite orchestrated moments which chime thereby in a fake, excessively emotional way. In a final part one can hear affectionate shouting and imploring mercy which is followed by shooting and ultimately by execution. In a word, it is all about very inferior aspects of human kind. However, as a sonic statement and formal sound collage it must be astounding because it compels the listener to think of these adverse situations and choices in life. Get it as a preventive act against the criminal career.
