This week’s Crack Mix comes courtesy of Leipzig native Credit 00.
Having established himself through a consistent stream of quality releases for Uncanny Valley, Credit 00 – real name Alexander Dorn – assumed responsibility for its sublabel Rat Life, forging a distinctively rough-and-ready direction for the fledgling offshoot.
Earlier this month Credit 00 returned to Uncanny Valley for his debut LP Game Over. With track titles like Hit Fire to Respawn and Insert Disk Two the album’s video game cues are obvious, but this is no twee chip tune effort – Dorn’s Darkwave and EBM leanings lend proceedings a grizled edge, leaving the finished product sounding like the Metal Slug soundtrack reimagined via a pitch-black Leipzig basement.
The Credit 00 Crack Mix can be understood as a reader to Game Over’s myriad influences, blending acid, electro, and mechanical dub into a tough-as-nails but highly listenable set.
