Genre:Electronic / Dance
When promoting the release of Figure-Ground’s ‘EP 5’, released December 2016 it was finally announced that the previously anonymous modular duo were in fact Dronelock’s Alexander Church and Boris Brenecki from Ontal. So now the cat’s out of the bag it seems fitting that Figure-Ground should have this outing on the Dronelock / Ontal co-run label, Shadow Story. Add to that a collaboration with one of the UK’s finest electronic artists and Figure-Ground fan, Paul Mac and you know you’re set for some beautifully worked productions from this trio of talent.Teasing and playing with the hardware throughout the EP, they’ve stayed within the realms of techno to create mind-melting and dance floor devastation across 6 tracks. From ‘Virtues Values & Venom’ itself that opens with gusto, before erratic beat experimentation on ‘Eightfold Path’, the frenetic ‘Digital Dialectic’, which also gets a second more staccato outing on Version 2, ‘Noble Habitus’ with its machine-funk to the subterranean ‘Nativism’, it’s obviously been an enjoyable ride and that translates to the listener.The ‘Virtues Values & Venom EP’ will be released digitally and on vinyl as a special edition 12” package that includes a CD and booklet of Figure-Ground’s debut album ‘Reality Revision’.

Following recent singles ‘Clusters (Remixes)’, ‘Continuum’ and ‘Parallax’ Dronelock & Ontal join forces for the collaboration’s biggest release to date, their debut album ‘The Topics’.Dronelock and Ontal’s joint label venture Shadow Story is a base for the dark, industrial exploration of sound that all four corners of the British/Serbian double duo employ as their modus operandi. 2013 saw a trio of EPs from Bradford residents, Dronelock (aka Martin Cartledge and Alexander Church) on the revitalised Weekend World label, which gathered support from the likes of Surgeon, Lucy (Stroboscopic Artefacts), Lakker, Inigo Kennedy, Pearson Sound, Adam Beyer, Marcel Dettmann, Detroit Grand Pubahs and many more. As one might expect, techno provides the perfect sanctuary for their production ideas to manifest: ambient, ethereal soundscapes meeting sustained clusters of tones.Last year saw Dronelock start the label, Shadow Story, a joint venture between themselves and Serbian duo Ontal (Boris Noiz and Darko Dekode). Forming an industrial techno/rhythmic noise project, Ontal (based in Subotica, Serbia) can, themselves, be described as an uncompromising, hard and intense assault. ‘The Topics’ is a distillation of ideas captured and expressed by the foursome through the industrial and synthesized, the organic and the abstract. The tracks are produced primarily on analogue hardware with the sole intention to perform them live. This process allows freedom to experiment with the base level interaction between sound and music. As they say “it’s music which is about as far away from music as you can get before it stops being music!”‘The Topics’ takes its cues from the scientific and technological advancements in modern society that have created the need for us to recognise and implement classic ideas and understand the roots of our society. The Topics equipped its user with the capacity to construct and deconstruct arguments, empowering us with the understanding and capacity to practice the art of discourse and persuasion. An awareness of the manipulation of words used to convince or persuade an audience to think in a certain way or to act in a certain way, to see through the spin and the propaganda used to control and manipulate the hearts and minds of individuals! ‘The Topics’ establishes the theoretical context for each release on this album as Dronelock & Ontal convey how sensory data is processed and how this information is conceptualised and communicated.From the opening, alluring lull of ‘Basic Methodology‘ to the industrial pulverising beats of ‘Sources of Argument’ and ‘Deductive Reasoning’ Dronelock & Ontal take us through a stark, cold hinterland of industrial soundscapes and body pummelling beats. Elsewhere warmth and light are provided on tracks such as the AFX-esque ‘Essential Attribute’, the sonar pulse of ‘Better or Worse’ and the radioactive heartbeat of ‘Discovery of the Senses’. Ultimately we find an album combining from various myriad components to forge one cohesive whole and one powerful listening experience.

incl. Shadows RemixThe third chapter of Shadow Story is another collaboration between its joint label owners, Dronelock and Ontal who show once again that their symbiotic relationship is a meeting of like-minds and distinctive production techniques.The EPs opener, ‘Parallax’ starts with a cinematic intro before launching into its pounding groove and dark electronics before the Shadows Remix version comes crackling into play.The title of ‘Drop Forge Steel’ conjures up an industrial landscape and you won’t be disappointed when this tough Techno track starts throbbing with all the intensity we’ve come to expect from the Dronelock / Ontal partnership.Though ‘The End of Eternity’ continues the pace of its predecessor, it also displays a quietness in its gentle melody to juxtapose the steely resonance.
