GERMLIN
Youth Pixxel

[Adaadat Records, www.adaadat.com]


Glasgownian Germlin is a laptop freak who specializes in all things twisted. His latest release "Youth Pixxel" is a fart of a glob that leaves your stomach with a funny, unsettling feeling. In fact, half-an-hour machinations that Germlin puts you through on the record are enough to devastate your mind and scramble your frequencies. Specializing in releasing his stuff on CD-Rs, he now signed on to Adaadat to give his sounds a tad of exposure. For a guy who name-checks Greg Davis, DAT Politics, Venetian Snares, Kevin Blechdom, Kid 606 and Hrvatski in one breath as his influences, oddly enough his full length is rather normal. Well, not exactly normal for the masses, but normal in the sense of lacking that extra punch, that extra something that would make it seem bizarre. Much of this stuff reminds me of the naďveté put across by Stunt Rock, except Germlin's humour is buried in the mix, while Stunt Rock makes his statements right up front. Full of beats that seem to speed at 1000 bpm, breaks, odd samples, scratching, samples and some peculiar vocals buried deep in the mix, "Youth Pixxel" is for the youth who are brave, daring and willing to try something truly new on their stereos. Dance music? Hell music? Crazy funk? Rough ride in the world of beats? Yes to all.
