for those rubberheads who consider somatic responses to be idm - thanks in part to their melodically brilliant 2002 album for hymen, touching the void - take heart: pounded mass stylistically name checks your idm and experimental electronic icons like aphex twin, squarepusher, and lee norris. somatic responses" john healy and paul healy also have a message for these folks: rethink that tag. pounded mass is one acerbic noise assault after another, the kind that will make most fans of twee synth tunes soil themselves. "we"ve taken a harder stance for this lp, as the title suggests," says john. "i think that we were categorized as idm for a bit, which we never really understood...so we"ve applied a few good measures of distortion, et cetera to this release. there"s much more of a mixed bag in this release..." on the tripadelic "bathrobe brawl v1," somatic responses infuse the psychotic turntablist scratching effervescence of dj spooky with breaks and bass worthy of a depth charge or dj shadow cut. one track later, on "go off," the welsh brothers healy crank up the somatic responses style of electro-mechano breakcore ferocity that would otherwise plant pounded mass firmly in the realm of xanopticon or orphx. then there"s the aptly-titled "the day idm crawled up its own arse," which john says is "a simple statement of what we think of the elitist and good old-fashioned cock-head idm producers." hymen sincerely hopes you "feel the love" on somatic responses" pounded mass.
