Downliners Sekt: Lorem Ipsum

If you didn't know from my glowingly positive reviews or my lengthy interview feature on FACT, I am a devotee of the Downliners Sekt.  Despite being pretty close with the duo-sometimes-trio-sometimes-conglomerate, I still don't know all that much about them, but I like that.  We all need a bit of mystery in our lives, and who better to explore the "seedy underbelly of the industrial age" than a bunch of hooded spacemen?  They did an amazing 40-odd-minute mix of all originals for Electronic Explorations, which is probably the best way into their sound if you're for whatever reason afraid of diving into their freely-available EPs, and as an outtake from the sessions that produced that material they've given me a free, brand new track to share!  What better way to commemorate over 500 twitter followers?

Lorem Ipsum: Staggered, slamming beats that seem to come together in split seconds like thunderclaps; tense, airless atmosphere; oppressive blackness interrupted only by the reflective qualities of chrome; disorienting polyrhythms; out-of-nowhere bouts of acoustic guitar splintering their way through the metal.  All the hallmarks of what might be considered archetypal Downliners Sekt, which is 2011-speak for really fucking great.  Download now.
