NZ 040C Urawa (A Dog Called Demolition) MLP Sold Out
NZ 040D Urawa (A Dog Called Demolition) MCD $14.99

Xingu Hill's John Sellekaers and collaborator Olivier Moreau combine for a mini-album project dedicated to William Burroughs' Dr Benway character. Urawa's sound is a subterranean atmosphere of weird pulses and alarm beeps with rhythms from acid-techno ("Assembly"), CJ Bolland-styled kick drums ("Kendi") and LFO-type Morse code melodies ("Silo"). Experimental and claustrophobic (A Dog Called Demolition) will appeal to those into adventurous music.

NZ 081B Xingu Hill Relay CD $17.99
Relay is a continuation of the Xingu Hill musical development. Xingu Hill's current sound now reminds of the Autechre tracks that aren't influenced by hip hop, although the police-radio-sampling track "Newshounds" could probably be pitched-up for that heavy electro-vibe. "Shockwave" leads off with a solid bass kick, machine-like counter-rhythms and menacing ambience. The drums are hard while the synth backing is still dark and full of surprises.
