Porter Ricks – Biokinetics

After stamping their authority on the world of electronic music in 2011 with Pete Swanson’s Man With Potential, one of the finest and most complex dark techno-noise records of the year, Type Recordings have quickly reasserted themselves in early 2012 with another heavyweight offering of pitch black subterranean sounds. This comes in the form of  Porter Ricks’ 1996 classic Biokinetics, a long out of print release that re-framed the genre and became something of a holy grail for techno fans. Frostily sparse, hauntingly minimal and disturbingly heavy, its originality and experimentation makes it feel as fresh today as it ever has done. Check out the album in full here.
