Scenario - A coded behavioural, psychic implant installs itself based on the individuals attachment to the objective world, his desire to consume. Appetite for power over others initiates the installation. Controlling it’s human host, who continues to assume himself free through the appearance of reason, mobility, access to data, procreation and consumption. Embedded in the mind, directing behaviour to serve the will of the God Machine - the sum total of its parts, People.
The implant can only be deactivated by the act of witnessing oneself. Reality is the loss of ego.
Def Mask - The Def Mask expresses itself through the psychological make up of the wearers surroundings. Societies pathos, the external world man has created through his mental idea of himself, a protection against, psychic vampires, philosophical ideology, religious indoctrination and relational gaslight. The mask keeps others at distance and creates a barrier between the wearer and the multiple realms of psychic pollutants.
A lot to digest but it's all lean and delicious. Grade A beats and delivery. Stand outs are Breezeway Ritual, My Auntie's Building, and Brick Body Complex. Obviously the later is inspiration for the album art, both compliment each other so much and set the tone for the set. Another record I'm happy to have taken a random chance on, Robert Writhe
