Official Music Team - Sonikillage Volume 1 [kovoroxsound - 2016]

Sonikillage Volume 1 is a wacky & decidedly retro focused sonic collage/ loop based release. The 33 track CDR brings together old ad jingles,  snippets lo-fi  80ís electronica, melted TV channel themes from 70ís/ 80ís British TV,  public service announcements, animal noise over sparse beats, quirky film dialogue samples, laughter, and all manner on quirky Ďní melted flotsam & jetsam.

The release appears on kovoroxsound- which is of course the long term label of Scottish noise maker & sonic experimentalist Lea Cummings( of Kylie Minoise, and many other projects). Itís not clear  who is part of the Official Music Team- but I suspected itís Mr Cummings and a few of his buddies.

As you'd expect with collage type releases the tracks here are mostly fairly short & sharpe, coming in between the one to two minute mark each. With only one track "Flocking" ( which suitable features a layered field recording of  flocking birds) coming in at the more lengthy 6.52 mark.

To get the most of this  release I think youíd really need to have grown up in 70ís/ 80ís Britain, as thatís where most of this stuff comes from. And when playing back it comes across as a dada semi melted multi- colour sonic ice pop snapshot of those times. On the whole the release nicely keeps your attention held through-out, and if you enjoy retro fuelled sonic collaring with a 70ís/ 80ís tilt this really must be checked out.
