Topdown Dialectic's self titled cassette on newcomer label, Aught, is an amalgam of layer upon layer of beats, loops, electronic din & static kisses. There's an electronic slime that's slinks it's way through these tracks muffling the radio transmissions & masking the already garbled voices that fight their way through the pulsating grime. The whole thing is dense & heavy but not so much that you can't move to it - if you were prone to dancing that is.
There's something industrial about it as well - not industrial as in the genre, but more so like this tape is the soundtrack to a movie set in a future Japan where acid rain is in a constant drizzle & the streets have fallen prey to debauchery & a robotically weaponized militia.
The packaging couldn't get much more minimal than this: white text imprinted on a clear shell housed in a clear ziplock bag. This looks to be Aughts standard aesthetic - 3 identical releases make up the label's current catalog. Grab Topdown Dialectic's joint and the others while your at it on Aught's Bandcamp page.
