neglectsound I put this on when i want to go out and smash cops in the face with a sledgehammer. Favorite track: Poison Your Body.
RONIN KILGANNON Brutality beats and sinister synths! I want to take my fucking clothes off and fuck shit up! 👍😈 That's how good this release is! Favorite track: Poison Your Body.

TigerTorakio Makes me want to rip off all my clothes and smash up a chemical plant with a sledgehammer. There's nothing subtle about this music. It's loud and rude, and it doesn't hide its angst. A seemingly sourceless, directionless youthful angst that fuels my desire to fight the fight. Favorite track: Marching Powder.

Ansome returns to Perc Trax for his first original release since his debut album 'Stowaway' was released on the label in April 2016. Since then he has extensively toured Europe and North and South America with his ever changing modular live set as well as further establishing his South London Analogue Material imprint with a run of uncompromising releases.

Despite decamping to Berlin last year 'British Steel' shows there is still a no nonsense UK grittiness to Ansome's music. The frenetic rhythms reflect the pressure and paranoia of London life and for the first time his music incorporates vocals, thanks to the voice of occasional live collaborator Oliver Kohlenberg.

The four tracks take in everything from broken grooves to straight up dance floor face melters with a perfect balance of rhythm and texture. 'Poison Your Body' already being a highlight of Perc's recent DJ sets for months now, whilst 'Marching Powder' was featured on Rebekah's debut essential mix for BBC Radio 1.


released November 10, 2017

Written & produced by Kieran Whitefield.
Vocals by 'Granite And Mortar' by Oliver Kohlenberg.
