about

Steven Porters' (aka Katsunori Sawa and Yuji Kondo's) debut EP on The Weevil Neighbourhood.

A masterpiece! (de:bug magazine)

Though I suppose that the Japanese duo Steven Porter was not behind the four previous anonymous releases on Weevil Neighbourhood, their music fits very well with what this Berlin label has released so far. Pressed onto red vinyl in a hand-numbered edition of 300 copies are three tracks mixing background noise, gritty drones and, at times, a driving but modest dub techno beat. The result is quite mesmerizing, a lot deeper and more interesting that what you would expect by only reading this description, and confirms Weevil's acute hear for this kind of sound. (Nicolas Chevreux/ Ad Noiseam)

Sterling Techno abstractions from Japanese duo Katsunori Sawa and Yuji Kondo for the enigmatic Weevil Neighbourhood. Judging from this debut single, we'd triangulate their sound somewhere between older Chain Reaction and Berlin Techno experiments but with a more squashed sense of pressure. The A-side is a bruised and oddly syncopated Dub-Techno groove at 116bpm, where swollen subs buoy creepy, creaking atmospheric space in churning, aqua-tech roll. Flipside is a grand and visceral piece of tempered digital noise a la Pan Sonic, plus a drowned and offbeat slab of sludgy, atmospheric suffocation, in the best possible sense, recalling recent Andy Stott moves.
