And another quite obscure but very recommended record from the Weevil Neighbourhood label. I actually wouldn't be really surprised if this Anthone act was the mysterious musician behind the Larvae / Pupa / Adult first series on this imprint, for the three track of Aloof carry the same sharp but encompassing combination of dub techno, darkish glitch and dubstep bass. Potentially club-friendly, but very rewarding to the active listener who takes time and dives into this EP, here's a piece of wax which undoubtedly comes from Berlin and manages to mix well some of the most typical sounds of this city. Recommended. (Nicolas Chevreux/ Ad Noiseam)

Anthone is the Weevil Neighbourhood's marquee artist. The exact identity of who Anthone is, however, a mystery. They, it, he, she, them, have only delivered quality for the label so far, beginning with the three-track Aloof from 2012 that features a sinisterly abstract piece of rave called Rebound. Somehow it's cheerily atmospheric while being heavy as a truck at the same time. The label's next release was Anthone's more serious Double Dub / Clear View 10, with both tracks sounding like the internal movements of giant weevil bug that's been built out of scrap metal and controlled by an evil little cretin from a Jean Pierre Jeunet film.
