Death in Vegas returns with Transmission, the resplendent sixth release from the project initiated by Richard Fearless nearly two decades ago. The album forges new miles on the path Fearless carved with Satan’s Circus and Trans- Love Energies, and is born of his desire to refine his increasingly rawer electronic sound.
United over a love of Throbbing Gristle and Chris and Cosey, Fearless partners with artist and writer Sasha Grey, whose lyrics resonate across the soundscape of visceral techno and unsettling, discordant drones, weaving into a state of dreamlike euphoria.
Field recordings of the constant drone of air traffic and incessant noise from the steel factory opposite Fearless’ Metal Box studio, as well as the Ballardian landscape in which it’s set, all exert their pull on the record, searching for light in the dark.
Transmission is an evolution and altogether new strain of Death In Vegas. This broadcast sees them re-energised and re-enhanced. Enjoy this trip.
