Snob Rock by Ben Wash (Miami Beach, Florida)
Are you looking for an album to make terrible decisions to? Something to play while you fuck that thot that you know is about to unload whole new set of VD on your ass? Are you trying to get arrested tonight? Are you trying to get arrested tonight?
For every thousand slap happy Tiesto fans in the world, there might be one Ben Wash fan. That’s how I know we’re living in dystopia. I don’t need The Wall to remind me how oppressed I am, I only need to look at the current state of our electronic scene. To combat that, Ben Wash might as well be fucking Superman.
‘Emma Watson Walks In’ might as well be finished by ‘to your limp body, dead from asphyxiation, dick in hand.’
Punk electronica, re-used condom music. I’ll call it what I want. From ‘Greaser’ through ‘Greaser pt. 2′, Snob Rock is here to tell you that this is not about you. It’s not about the “single culture” and it’s not about how good you look at the club. It’s about the melodies, obstructed by gravity, that fail to escape the inner language of this unflinchingly violent music. Where you might here 2/4, I hear a revolving pattern of interlaced loops that reassimilate with themselves to form new boundaries; creating “club” music that remains fresh even on the 10th listen (trust me, I’ve been listening all goddamn day). And where you hear the droning amphetamine rush of movement, I hear the gentle dance between the subtle dynamics. I know, this is not gentle. Maybe not to you. To me it’s fucking ballet.
If you get high, get high to this. If you don’t, get high to this.
‘Give Me’ was the come up. I’m almost sure it’s the reason my headphones are broken. Thank God I have a few pairs of Grados because listening to this on anything but, would be an injustice that Wash would have every right to hate you for. This is music to hate fuck to. This is music Trent Reznor would be proud of. Yeah I’ll speak for Trent, no problem.
Thank you King’s Head Records. @Dingusonmusic
