SEPTIC III - VARIOUS ARTISTS

SEPTIC III

After the great success of the first two "Septic" samplers much was expected from this third volume and having listened to it I can safely say it doesn't disappoint at all.

As usual, the material here is all completely unreleased and, as well as the remixes there are a number of unreleased tracks, such as the stunning "Antichrist" from The Retrosic, a dancefloor stormer without a doubt and the harsh mix of industrial and electropunk of Babyland's "Nowdays".

Several big names are represented, including the inspired pairing of SITD and Pzycho Bitch for the former's remix of the latter's "Wake Up", a quite stunning combination that will appeal to all those who enjoyed the "Snuff Machinery" track (which must mean all of you surely?).

Ivory Frequency's Resilience mix of "Clock Is Ticking Fast" is a typical electro piece that builds up into an almost overwhelmingly euphoric sonic blitz. Sulpher's 'Alt Needle Mix" of "Fear Me" is more electro-styled than their normal output while Backlash will doubtless win more friends with the solidly rhythmic 'Clean Version' of "Regression Is No Option" demonstrating their mix of old and new electro elements. The ever reliable Icon Of Coil do what they do best on "In Absense" (Bodhran Mix) as do Seabound on "Coward 2K2" while the legions of Suicide Commando fans won't be disappointed by Johan Van Roy's offering "Cry For Mother". Interlace's excellent "Soul of A New Machine" gives a good account of what this Swedish band can do so if you like this check 'em out.

A number of new acts make their mark here, including Autoaggression who open the album with "3.14" which, while laying down some impressive beats and sequences seems a bit repetitive as the minimalistic style soon wears thin. Analogue Brain's punchy offbeat version of "Warm Leatherette" stays faithful to the spirit of the original while bringing it bang up to date.

The inclusion of Stochastic Theory whose danceable synthpop/futurepop will appeal to fans of De/Vision and Apoptygma with their brand of up-to-date danceable synthpop/futurepop mix and the VNV-like Resthetic Perfection (the harsh vocals aside) will doubtless raise a lot of interest as, following the success of the aforementioned bands it's immediately obvious that these newcomers are poised to make the same impact. Another new name Paperhouse close the album with the slow and majestic "Wenishtoo" on a chilled-out reflective vibe full of feeling.

So hats off to Dependent for another top notch compilation offering a faceful of the present and a tantalising glimpse of the (not too distant I hope) future.
