Nntblst is a talented young man from Chile who is interested in techno, dachshunds and finding his way via both hardware and software – basically, three of the best things to spend your time on! Special Defects, his debut recordings for Recycled Plastics, are in some parts minimal techno, in others, deep droning synthesizer constructs, scratching our itch for things like Kompakt and maybe even some Sleeparchive or Pan Sonic. “Think” is an austere filter-riding drumless beast, and “Dachshunds” could easily have appeared on a Reinhard Voigt 12″ in the Speicher series. Nntblst is a frequent live performer, so you can enjoy his material in both live club environments and headphones/home hi-fi setups, knowing he’s fully rinsed these tracks in front of unsuspecting crowds.
For those of you who prefer hard techno to be an equally physical affair, there is a limited edition CD-R version of Special Defects containing two bonus tracks – “Rethink”, a rhythmic alternate version of “Think”, and a Coppice Halifax remix of “Risset Overtones” that might just destroy your speakers if the rest of the album doesn’t do it first.
