You won’t find this kind of music on my other articles, and you likely won’t hear it on the radio (except for a few select DJ sets). In this episode, I present 10 filthy, dark, destructive, massive, mind-bending pieces of music production. This is for the club music fiends. I don’t mean the regular bangers clubs, I’m talking the dirty underground basements. If on occasion you like to twist your wig up, this list is for you.

Top 10 Huge Club Music Tracks

2. Blanck Mass — “Rhesus Negative”

3. Beppu — “Institutional Neurosis”

4. This Morn' Omina — “The Immutable Sphere”

5. Blacknecks — “Never Forget”

7. Sunil Sharpe — “Saturana”

1. Blacknecks — “To The Cosmos, Lets Go!”

Vinyl, 12": 004

Release Year: 2014

The artist and track name speak a-thousand words. Black Necks sound dangerous, and they are. When this track starts out, its easy to say ‘this is just techno’, but when the synths come in you know its something beyond that… something indescribable. ‘To The Cosmos, Lets Go!’ is a wacked intergalactic belter, which makes you feel like you’re being taken to the cosmos. If there was an aggressive, high contact code of football called Alien Rules, this would be the halftime entertainment at the Grand Final between the biggest rivals of the galaxy.

2. Blanck Mass — “Rhesus Negative”

Album: World Eater
Release Year: 2017

There are several Blanck Mass productions that could slot into this list. Benjamin John Power knows how to create a wall of sound that is out of this world. This is music for real weirdos. For more full-on sound from Blanck Mass, also check out ‘The Rat’ (World Eater), ‘Dead Format’ and ‘Double Cross’ (Dumb Flesh).

3. Beppu — “Institutional Neurosis”

Album: Persuasion
Release Year: 2015

In 2015, Beppu released a monster of an album titled Persuasion, which is absolutely menacing. The easy classification would be industrial techno, but at its peak Beppu is even heavier. Despite its abrasiveness, the majority of Beppu’s work on Persuasion is still playable in a dance club. The track I have selected here, “Institutional Neurosis” literally could have you heading off to an institution for psychiatric care.

4. This Morn' Omina — “The Immutable Sphere”

10:59 version
Album: Le Serpent Blanc ~ Le Serpent Rouge
Release Year: 2003

05:47 version
EP:
Nagash 12”
Release Year: 2013

I haven’t heard the long version of ‘The Immutable Sphere’ from 2003. Irrespective, the 2013 version released on the Gooiland Elektro label is phenomenal. Don’t let the label name (Gooiland Elektro) fool you, ‘The Immutable Sphere’ is epic tribal techno meets psy-trance. I’ve never cared a great deal for psy-trance but the fact this track is borderline psy is exactly what makes it great. For some reason the track is called ‘The Immaculate Sphere’ on the Discogs listing, but the word ‘Immutable’ appears on the record.

5. Blacknecks — “Never Forget”

Vinyl, 12": 05
Release Year: 2014

If you have listened to #1 on this list already, there is not much to say about Blacknecks. ‘Never Forget’ doesn’t fetch the price of 'To the Cosmos' on Discogs, but it is more than worthy of a #5 ranking. As one youtube fan comments on this song:

“When I first heard this in a club I was on Mars and the year was 2060”.

6. An-i — “Gutz”

Vinyl, 12": Gutz

Release Year: 2014

Douglas Lee (aka. Lee Douglas) is probably more known for his house productions, although has released some fine techno/EBM tunes under the An-i alias in recent years. Gutz is a relentless industrial techno belter. For those who like to show off their records, it also comes in a Fluorescent Magenta Orange 12” Vinyl. If you’re into techno, this will be a collectors item. Also check out ‘Mutter’ on Cititrax (CITI 017).

7. Sunil Sharpe — “Saturana”

Vinyl, 12": Untitled
Release Year: 2012

Saturana featured on Sunil Sharpe’s Untitled 12” that was released on the Works The Long Nights label founded by Blawan and Pariah. If you need a club weapon and want to blow people’s scones off, get this record. If you can access it in high quality digital, post in the comments.

8. Ascetic — “Utterings” (Ancient Methods Remix)

Vinyl, 12": Ascetic: ‎– Everything Is Becoming //Remixes
Release Year: 2017

Ascetic are a post-punk band from Melbourne, now based in Berlin. Dark groups like Ascetic are the perfect foundation for an Ancient Methods (aka. Michael Wollenhaupt) remix. A couple of remixes from Ancient Methods have featured in my other blogs, and that his because he is a freak. The original “Utterings” is in most parts relatively mellow, but still a quite stressful and intense sound. Wollenhaupt turns the original into a club destroyer.

9. Voiski — “Tin There”

Album: Marble Sadness
Release Year: 2017

It is worth listening most things released by Luc Kheradmand (aka. Voiski), who has been consistently solid for a number of years now. I guess this is a cover/version of Underworld’s track ‘Tin There’. Both are good, but Voiski’s version is a little more suitable for the modern club. Not quite as fast, but still brutal.

10. Most Significant Beat — “Amy Tekno”

Album: Música Y Electrónica
Release Year: 2008

This song is fantastic and earned a re-release in 2015 on the Geometric State Compilation by Frigio Records. In the beginning, it might sound like an odd electro track going nowhere. At 1:32 things really ramp up, becoming more dancefloor oriented, yet somehow progressively weirder. The vocal samples are coming from a computerised female personality named Amy, who is an ambassador for techno.
