Offical Team - Sonikillage Volume 2 [kovoroxsound - 2015]

Sonikillage Volume 2 is the second slice of sonic wackiness &  crazed retro collage from this Scottish project. Much like the first volume this second CDR release offers up twenty seven tracks that blend & meld together all manner of sonic flotsam & jetsam. This time taking-in a shifting sonic canvas of the following elements: snippets of lo-fi  80ís electronica/ gabba, retro J-Pop, dramatic yet melted film scoring with beats added-on,  space invader sounds, melted TV channel themes from 70ís/ 80ís, oriental advert jingles, bland US TV jingles, news samples from around the time of the JFK assignation, and moon landing  and all manner on quirky Ďní melted sonic silliness .

Once again the release appears on kovoroxsound- which is the long term label of Scottish noise maker & sonic experimentalist Lea Cummings( of Kylie Minoise, and many other projects). The album  artwork doesnít detail who is involved with the project, but I strongly suspect itís Mr Cummings & buddies.

I guess youíd say this vol is a little more musically, and less  purely non musical sample based. Also there is a bit more layering & blending of elements going on here too. So on the whole Iíd say itís a more listenable, yet still rewardingly jarring compared with the first vol.

All told itís great to see a second release from this project, and I hope thereís more in the pipe-line, as they seem to growing in both quality & listenability as they go along. Also this vol will be of a bit more world general interest, as the first vol was quite focused on retro TV samples from Britain in the 70ís/ 80ís, which of course doesnít mean a lot to those who didnít grow up in that time in the uk.
