about

Anarchic trash-techno trios from Minneapolis aren't necessarily a plentiful commodity in our experience, especially ones as freewheeling and funked up as Beat Detectives. Comprised of Chris Hontos (also of Food Pyramid and Dreamweapon), visual artist Aaron Anderson, and the multi-talented Oakley Tapola, the group got their start playing a heavily smeared form of rudimentary dance music at "dirt raves in punker basements" around the Twin Cities before Anderson relocated to NYC. Music 2 is the perfect sophomore stepping stone, following their Casual Encounters Of The Third Kind debut on Moon Glyph. Woozy house mutations and pitch-shifted party-acid experiments congeal and dissolve around Tapioca's delirious, deadpan vocals (she manages to make lyrics like "American flag / with weed leaves / replacing the stars" sound strange and deranged instead of silly), interspersed with dizzy dub grooves and displaced electro-jack. Reminiscent in places of those weird deep cuts on certain late 80's Warrior Records acid comps, before the style got codified and normalized. Regenerative club mutagen for a world with a stick up its ass.
