A hitherto unknown name in the world of techno, Samuel Kerridge makes an auspicious debut on the esteemed Horizontal Ground with Auris Interna. With a sound that is somewhere between classic Basic Channel, the knackered house of Andy Stott and even the warped industrial shapes of Powell, his sound is unique even on the forward thinking Horizontal Ground. "In & Out" combines deep chords with brushed kicks, wrapping everything up in a codeine fog; "Auditory System" meanwhile drops the BPM to an even more funereal crawl, filling its bleak soundscape with distant breakbeats and electrical surges. On the flip, the industrial leaning "Remove Yourself" brings a marked aggression to proceedings, as distorted bass meet with Cut Hands inspired afro-futurist rhythms, while "Membranous Labyrinth" closes the EP with a heavy slice of industrial drone in the Emptyset mould, slowly giving way to a thick, ominous kick drum. A seriously bold debut which comes highly recommended.
