Tieum & Lenny Dee’s "Microtronic" has been fascinating me all afternoon. Not least because it sets out to just vaporise any possible audience. You can’t dance to it, it’s not Hardcore, it’s not industrial enough for Industrial, it’s not fucking drum’n’bass or jungle no eMusic I do not care if you say it is wash your fucking ears out, and the kid on YouTube who called it "terrorcore" needs to go home to his fucking mummy.

What it is is Bloody Loud. And I don’t know about you, but what I really needed today was something big and alien and metallic and Bloody Loud.

(Note also that, no, it’s not a video, someone just uploaded the track to YouTube with a static image.

This is off the EP that’s also called MICROTRONIC, on the Altern-Hate label.

  1. If The Sonics and GnR can both be said to be doing Rock music then I can’t see why we can’t call this noise music. It’s just newest incarnation of noise music. Sounds like Duran Duran Duran, Drumcorp (or any of those Cock Rock Disco kids really), could also be Rolo Tomassi without the metalcore vocals. Hell there are bands like this springing up all over the planet and have been for the past 3 years at least.
    But if someone starts calling this Nu-noise I will drag them to the arctic circle and kneecap them and leave them for dead.

  2. Fuckin’ A, that WAS awesome! I wonder what Trent Reznor would think of it? Reminds me of the remix of NIN’s Where is Everybody, not to mention the third remix of Starfuckers Inc. (both on Things Falling Apart).

  3. It’s pretty straightforward gabba…a little off-kilter maybe, but no so left-of-centre as to be unrecognisable. I have a large section of my hard drive devted to this kind of stuff. And you can dance to it. Easily. In fact, that’s pretty danceable in comparison to some of the stuff people are knocking out on laptop sets at the moment.
