afro noise 1 : volume 2
william bennett of whitehouse fully submerges himself in african percussion with experimental, dark results.
this was never going to be music to rear fluffy, cute ducklings to & all the better for it! a bludgeoning mix of machine & vaudou/central african percussion plus other acoustic instruments combine to create an extreme, physical & intense musical experience through the manipulation of congolese & ghanaian rhythms.
jason recommends: "the two sides of william bennett collide as he fuses the abrasive textures of whitehouse with the timbres & rhythms of traditional african music. best know as the founding member of uk noise group whitehouse, bennett has always been obsessed with africa & its music. after the success of his afro noise mix, bennett became a man on a mission, four years in the making & utilizing his collection of congolese & ghanaian percussion instruments, the afro noise finally arrives. the result: killer african rhythms layered with atmospheric electronic textures & engulfing drones. awesome stuff!!"
