A split tape featuring two one person noise/electronic projects that both embark on treks into the world of electro-clash, or some kind of new descriptor for the music that we used to just call new wave...but now that it ain't really new any more, we need to come up with new things to call it. N.213 is disjointed - the term 'quirky' certainly applies to these bedroom mixes, though the vibe is decidedly hip and lighthearted. JESSE TAYLOR, while making music that is more palatable, also manages to create a real mood with his songs. A sound that is equal parts stripped down VANISHING, KRAFTWERK and some lost atmospheric synth laden wizardry that still grooves. "Spell On You" is a classic lonely-highway-late-at-night song, while "Disco (Disappear/Forever)" is self indulgent and dreary minimal goth - perfect. But then, he does title his side of the tape Soft Disco, and I guess that term is pretty accurate as well.
