Prurient - Bermuda Drain

One of the albums of the year. Released in July, Prurient is Dominick Fernow, influential noise musician and founder of Hospital Productions. Bermuda Drain sees him turn from pure noise to dark wave synth and black metal. The production is more polished and accessible than his previous work but still remains intense and experimental, akin to Pan Sonic and Nine Inch Nails, and that can only be a good thing.

Stand-out tracks: Let's Make A Slave and Sugar Cane Chapel.

Child of Eden

Child of Eden is a rhythm action game created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi. It serves as a prequel to the classic cyberpunk game Rez.

You journey through a kaleidoscopic matrix representing an infected cyberpspace, cleansing targets which produce melodic sounds upon destruction.
As was the case with Rez, Child of Eden is presented as an experiment on synesthesia, integrating sound, vision and touch in one seamless experience. Combine this using the Xbox Kinect controller and 3D compatability, the game takes interactive digital art to a new level.

Mark Stewart

Mark Stewart is a founding member of The Pop Group and a pioneer of industrial hip-hop. Urban paranoia with a techno sensibility; the positivity of dub reggae gone horribly wrong; dystopian visions mixed with those of William Blake, Donna Summer and William Burroughs; voodoo and ultra-left texts. It does work, most of the time, and when it doesn't the fractures and fuck ups can be far more rewarding than the gleaming monolith of yet another corporate uber-production.


As The Veneer Of Democracy Begins To Fade (1985)

Regarded as one of the heaviest records ever made, Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto once stated that their initial aim was to make a record more extreme than this. This is just a small indication of how influential this record has been.

"Mark Stewart, he's my chaos."
- Tricky

Collaberating with artists such as Adrain Sherwood, Trent Reznor and Massive Attack, Stewart has released 7 albums, from 1983 with "Learning To Cope With Cowardice" to as recent as 2008 with "Edit".

 Uncompromising, confrontational, political, firey and aggressive. Totally recommended.
