Xylocaine - Experiment in Fear (1995)

OK I'm out of my depth here -- I know nothing about breakcore, which, I'm fairly certain, this is. So I'll just tell you what I hear: whole lotta breakbeats, whole lotta distorted, hyper-speed, gabber-style kicks, whole lotta samples, zero melodic elements. Pretty much noise music, except you can imagine really coked-up Euros dancing to it. I fucking love it. Who can recommend more stuff like this?

1. 440Hz

  1. Are you familiar with Venetian Snares?

  2. bloodyfistrecords dot bandcamp.com

  3. DuranDuranDuran or Donna Summer / Jason Forrest. Xanopticon comes to mind, too.

  4. [http://selfishfew.blogspot.ca] has some "NYC Speedcore" & "HxC techno", which seem to be related.
    Found the blog when looking for rare GENOCIDE ORGAN. Guy's also got tons of Japanese/Finnish Punk. Think you'll enjoy; check it out.

    Thanks again for the blog. Cheers!

  5. Nero's Day at Disneyland - From Rotting Fantasylands

    A hallmark of the genre.

    Also Arkhaiomelisidonophunikheratos, by Satanicpornocultshop.

  6. This is nice.
    Besides Venetian Snares and some hardcore techno, closest I can think of is some early Alec Empire stuff (The Destroyer, Bass Terror, Squeeze the Trigger...). Not super similar, however.

  7. safoh:


    Annoying Ringtone (Party Killer!!!):


    Delta 9 - ANbRx Pharmaceuticals II


    also the classic:


    Rabbit hole further with this label:


  8. I did a one off project in a similar vein, more noise than break, or using breaks and beats instead of pedal loops as noise source:


  9. bloodclaat gangster youth, \atr/slayer - no remorse, v snares - sabbath dubs. v snares - rossz..., In the Mouth of Madness - A Metal, Crossbreed & Breakcore Mix
    is, imo, a ripping mix (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sl5FkhdSpJM) - well worth checking out and definitely psychedelic in its effect rather than its form.

    In the Mouth of Madness - A Metal, Crossbreed & Breakcore Mix

  10. Late 90's speedbass was like this but heavier and on more drugs. DEV/NULL is good one , both "Necrobestial Sadobreaks" and "Lazer Thrash" are solid albums. Cant name any albums but Madame Chao was pretty intense. He had and crazy public access show , youtube that high please.
    Your blog is awesome. You should know that.

  11. this rules. similar to bogdan raczynski maybe

  12. stupidfag is right. Bloodyfist is where its at for this style of hardcore. Pretty much anything Mark N was involved with is amazing. Check out Rent Money Acquisition, Stuck in Stallis, or Stick your happy hardcore records up yer arse...Best Hardcore dj ever.

  13. Coked up Euros you say? Have at it: https://breakcoregivesmewood.bandcamp.com/album/various-breakcore-gives-me-wood
