Alien Rain


Ellen Allien’s rough and raw techno outlet UFO returns with a familiar face. Alien Rain ( aka Milton Bradley ) was responsible for ‘UFO2‘, now he’s back with four incendiary slices of mutoid funk, entitled the ‘Empire Of Illusion’ EP.

The EP tart with the title track, which possesses a snub-nosed kick and a voluminous hoover sound dominating the intro. An eerie melody creeps in, creating a mysterious atmosphere. The hoover maintains its ferocity as we encounter a steady build up of tension and drama, Alien Rain adopting a patient approach and keeping it intriguing throughout.
Then we have ‘Numbers Station’, a strange cut that merges warped vocal clips with classic rave stabs. The artist really toys with the listener on this one, switching between moods and rhythms in an almost schizo- phrenic manner, as the vocal demands ‘Attention… Attention’.
Next up is ‘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.
This is followed by ‘Alien Tool 1’, a simple yet deadly acidic roller which brims with intensity, bubbling under for a while, with occasional peaks that penetrate deep into your psyche. Strap yourself as it constantly threatens to reach boiling point and overflow with energy.

Empire Of Illusion‘ EP will be available, after the 5th of March, in digital and 12″ vinyl formats here.
