"On/Off are Housemeister (BPC/boysnoize/AYCB) and Toktok's Fabian Feyerabendt, who's one half of Toktok and their label, Bomzh, which also released On/Off's debut 12". Now it's time for the 3rd On/Off 12" -- it is more club-oriented, floor compatible and mixable in versatile ways. All tracks originated in live sessions, always Tuesday nights, featuring man and modern man's best friend, the machines, the instruments! Either they met at Housemeister's studio or at Toktok's holy halls. The respective guest would bring 2 machines of his own, the complete setting would be assembled individually each time. All settings default, and there it goes: the legendary 303 Devilfish, MPC 4000, mono machines, machine drums, miscellaneous old synths and even more space echoes and guitar effects. The goal was to master each machine so tightly, that it could be played like an instrument, live in a track, that then wouldn't have to be cut anymore. Damn! A1, 'Strikes Back' is a straight-up rough and dirty killer. Boosted acid, noise rattles and grinds while the beats are fucked with just in time. Housemeister found vocals on Youtube years ago and now finally puts them to appropriate use."
