It has now become the custom to receive a mouth-watering reissue from Dark Entries on a weekly basis. These guys have become the certified masters when it comes to resurfacing rare and experimental music form the '80s, and their latest treasure comes from West London's Shoc Corridor, a band who specialized in synth-pop and coldwave. Experiments In Incest was their debut LP, originally out on indie label Shout, and while the release covered that era's typical influences, Shoc Corridor went that little bit further into the realms of Kraftwerk-like electronics and synth manipulation. "Khartoum" has to be the masterpiece on here, a gorgeous drum-machine journey accompanied by subtle Arabic voices, warm bass, and a seductive swarm of synth flutes. "In An Empty Room" is the other stunner on here, and its glitchy 606 beats and ominous sonics would fit right at home on pretty much any Editions Mego release nowadays. This is special, don't miss it.
