In suiting what started off as a fairly dark and dank electroniqiod show this weeks pullout is a sly wee Emperor Machine dub of DC Recordings shiny new cab on the rank, Higamos Hogamos. This duo, made up of the exotically monikered Squire of Somerton and The Black Neon (ok Steve Webster and Toby Jenkins), are cooking a mighty mess of motorik mightyness in their synth splattered kitchen. Their debut EP featuring the ballbustingly brilliant The Illumanoids (which you can check out at the marvelous RCRDLBL) is troubling the vendors of superlative waxy black purchases around the glob, as I type. The album is mere weeks away (23d of this month) and it already has the makings of something that will cause me to drool like a fool. There's a lot of folks (the good, the sad and the insipid) claiming krautrock, scuffley shoegaze and noveau-school psychedelia as their calling cards these days, but these two shady fellows have got a solid dose of their own thing going on. 
DC just seems to go from strength to strength to the extent that they are getting downright scary.... what will they come up with next?? Can their superior weirdbeard electronics magnet continue to attract such fantastic filings... I suspect so and these dark times may be perfectly in-sync (or dare I say in-stink) with their stupefying stable. 
You can check about where their suitably fruity name comes from and their Fort Lauderdale past etc etc in the links below, there's a few other tracks floating around out there so search and should you respond favourably - pursue with every muscle in your body.

(buy) the first 12", NB This track is not on it but it does have a storming Depth Charge remix.
N.M.E. has a download of another remix here
