Shadowy UK based producer Bleaching Agent (AKA Al Mathews) will release his new EP 'Mulkul' this May on newly minted London label Reposition Records. The four-track release also features a remix by D-56MAKA Nick Dunton of 65d Mavericks), who also runs Poverty Is Violence and Surface Records. Bleaching Agent's latest 12" follows releases on some of underground music's most interesting labels, including Mira, Opal Tapes and Komisch. Matthews is well known for his collaborative projects too - from his deranged, progressive Blacknecks duo with Truss, to the prolific techno output of Forward Strategy Group. He also maintains a DJ residency at Body Horror, a Manchester based gore-themed queer techno/industrial/transgressive performance art night. 'Mulkul' is the second release on Reposition Records, and follows the debut release by Belgian producer T-Scale. Formed by London based DJs and artists Medallion Man - who also runs Loose Lips and 199Radio and El Prevost, who runs label No Speakers and has released under Third Ear Recordings - the label explores varying strains of raw, left-field dance music. 'Mulkul' offers a more stripped down and slower version of the sound Bleaching Agent has evolved - albeit one that is still rooted in atonality and the unnatural industrial sound he specialises in, this time developed into something more disciplined. Delving into minimalism within a raw industrial sound, the tracks are built with tight, melodic grooves locked inside the vacuum of a dense hardware-heavy sound. 'Albeni' is a pounding warehouse stomp, punching through with a repetitive vocal sample, snarling synths and a hard bassline. The D-56M remix of 'Free Fere Fer Fe' offers crusading space-age techno chiming with sinister synths and a blistering bassline, creating an almost cinematic ambience. The dystopian terrain is shot through with melody and nuance - visceral, oppressive soundscapes frequently segueing into more moodier, subtler moments.
