Misery Business taken from Empire Of Illusion EP by Alien Rain, out today on UFO Inc.
Ellen Allien ’s rough and raw techno outlet UFO returns with a familiar face. Alien Rain (AKA Milton Bradley) was responsible for UFO002, now he’s back with four incendiary slices of mutoid funk, entitled the ‘Empire Of Illusion’ EP. On Ellen’s fledgling label the focus is on uncompromising, underground sounds, powerful rhythms and transcendent energy. Alien Rain delivers all of that in abundance on this imposing EP.
Listen ‘Misery Business’ which gets straight to business with its slammin’ kicks. The classic 303 comes into play here, keeping the atmosphere highly charged. Ominous strings enter the fray, casting an emotive shadow over the breakdown before the madness ensues in the second half.
