S Olbricht - A Place Called Ballacid - Lobster Theremin (UK) 10''
Lobster Theremin gets it's first 10" release on the White Label series via Farbwechsel boss and Opal Tapes releasee, S Olbricht. Having amassed a discography of murky, unsettling house and techno culled from the belly of the machine, Olbricht makes his LT debut with four slices of womb-recorded house and scruffy beats on 'A Place Called Ballacid'. Opening with the galloping flange-hell jam 'fi', Olbricht screws, twerks and modulates his squished acid lines into a wretching cosmic gloop. But that's not everything; the A1 contains a secret 1 minute reprise, all Larry Heard acid lines reverberating under a warm heated blanket with 808 bubbles just about hitting the surface. This is swiftly followed by the twinkling, melodic 'veuns'. Easily the most accessible slice of the release; the thunderous bassline and killer percussion aim to derail it's tom-driven stutter but to no avail. A short-but-sweet floor-crumbler!
