We got our Nine. Mistress that is, not millimetre. Here’s a joke: What do you get if you put a vaguely gothic D&B chick, a 303, a female voice choir, the complete Macross saga on DVD and the rhythm section of the Cardiff Turntable Orchestra in the same room for four months? You give up? Well, I don’t know either, but there’s one crawling down your ‘net connection.

Love her or hate her, and believe me we do both when it’s her turn to do the washing up, Nine knocks out the funky beats once more. A bit of choppy choral to add to the mystery, but mostly this track is down the subterranean end of the spectrum with a deep growling bassline and drums just not audible on normal speakers. Zentradi commanders discussing the merits of invading 21st century Earth merely add a barely needed surreal element to the proceedings.

Be sure to listen for the KCORKIRVARONOM Satanic messages.

Mistress Nine – State Of Anxiety {mrv004}

Artist: Mistress Nine
Title:
State Of Anxiety
Label:
 monoRAVEik
Catalog #:
mrv004
Release Date:
2001/09/22


There’s nothing like a little monoRAVEik action to mash the place up a little, and surprisingly enough, this time it’s from a newcomer, Mistress Nine, busting out the proto-breakbeat moves so smoothly, you’d believe it was the lord Subi himself at the keys.

You might know Mistress Nine as one of the leading lights in the DJ scene at ‘The Village’, Portmeiron’s own special gated community. It’s fortunate for us that she managed to get this mp3 unimprisoned, and we’re now able to enjoy the blend of breathy vocals, crunching beats, and rasping analog synths. What with Public Domain shooting back up the charts in the UK, is it time for monoRAVEik to enjoy a critical renaissance? We think so, but then, we’re still Acen fans at heart.
