Ghost Detergent LP
Spectrum Spools 41 / AUS / 2016
"Ghost Detergent" is a consummate amalgam of fried gear, chunky bass and fractured samples. Donadio's extraordinary ability to fuse his wide range of influences into a collection of lucidly executed and concis.e jams has reached it's paragon. "Ghost Detergent" is a rhythm-centric maze of fluctuating patterns adorned with crooked fills and raucous melody.Tracks like "Nerve and Gall" and "Government Wrecker" stomp with a coarse, grinding fuss gliding on swinging bottomless bassline turbulence. Locked in puzzle-like sampling patchwork collides perfectly with an array of rogue electronics creating a sense of daring nearly extinct in the age of gridlocked BPM-steady 12"s. Tracks like "Pregnant Toad" and "Cheap Amplifiers" play out like a Def Jam bonus beat with ripping, cough syrup slathered DMX snare sounds. "Ghost Detergent" has an unhinged, unrelenting churn that stares squarely into a personal vacuum.
