"Spezial Material is a label with a pedigree to be reckoned with, surrounded by a host of admirers and friends from Gescom to the Warp crew and beyond, redefining that most typical of electronic euphemisms 'collectable' into a statement about not only the scarcity of their releases, or the strikingly inventive and sublime use of artwork and packaging, but also to the formation of some of the most advanced intricate (ahem) electronic stylings you'll hear this side of Autechre. Thomas Federspiel & Fabian Stübi are longtime SM crew operators -- In Pectra is their debut full-length release. This album has been a long time coming, taking time to deploy its deep mass of chopped, squashed and downright spannered beat arrangements : 10 tracks of sheer brilliance that terrify with a demented hip hop aesthetic and an insistence on puncturing demented tweaks and rhythmic malfunctions with every turn. If you've been impressed by Team Shadetek or any of Scott Herren's many incarnations, or even the longtime percussive re-inventions of Autechre, In Pectra is just for you."
