Anyone who follows Add Void regularly (do such people exist?) will know that we’re huge fans of Andy Stott and the whole of Manchester-based label Modern Love’s incredible output of twisted, ripped and deadened techno mutations. So it’s no surprise that we’re pretty excited about their newest release, the first solo outing for Gaz Howell (previously of Pendle Coven and HATE Soundsystem) under the simplistically-initialed guise of G.H. The first side of the 12″ seems to have been hewn out of solid sub and feels like an overdose in Berghain, rusting cogs, dripping pipes, clinking chains and all. The post-industrial theme continues on the flip side with metallic clangs playing off a thudding bass until the incredible ‘Earth’ emerges, spitting chopped and screwed funk samples over a deconstructed techno workout. It’s dark, heavy and pretty nasty stuff, but shit does it feel good.
