Nashville producer Ren Schofield continues his strange odyssey with his strongest tracks yet via Italy's Morphine records (Morphosis, Hieroglpyhic Being). Previous releases forSpectrum Spools have shown the producer (and admitted techno outsider) plying the tough sounds issued by labels like Stroboscopic Artefacts,though his formatives are the legendary early-00s Providence, RI noise scene. Here, Schofield has found the perfect drum sounds for his uncompromising tracks. The rhythm tracks in "Saturated" have as much to doThis Heat or even Arab On Radar as they doJamal Moss- the end result feels like a more incisive version ofAphex Twin'"Didgeridoo". The title track starts with martial post-punk drums before taking a brutal trip into delay and dynamics that would give any industrial-techno producer a run for their money. Closer "Obstruction" sounds a bit likeKassem Mosse mixed by Wolf Eyes.
