Animistic Beliefs - Thief of Sanity
Central Processing Unit aside, is there a more on-point 21st century electro and IDM label than Brokntoys? The label has certainly been in form for a long time, and the imprint's latest EP - a first Brokntoys outing from Rotterdam duo Animistic Beliefs - is another cracker. They set the tone with the driving, acid-flecked soundscape electro treat "Ojo De Las Grayas", a track we can imagine sound-tracking intergalactic spaceship chases in an otherworldly sci-fi movie, before reaching for a plethora of dark and psychedelic noises on the dense, techno-tinged and acid-powered "Blind Submission". The pair peppers a crunchy, ghetto-tech style beat with alien-sounding electronic noises on "Toque Mortal", while title track "Thief of Sanity" boasts creepy chords and chilling melodies that reminded us of "Laura Palmer's Theme".
