Repressed. Diagonal presents Streetwalker, the duo of Beau Wanzer and Elon Katz. Titled "Ooze," it's a shadowy, mechanistic dancefloor crusher, originally released as a limited cassette single on the Catholic Tapes label in 2011, now pressed to vinyl and accompanied by a remix from Silent Servant. Recorded, processed and overdubbed using an arsenal of hardware, including a rare E-mu modular system and a home-built light-sensitive synthesizer, it builds across 12 minutes from woody drums and spooked whispers into a disorienting mass of snake-like acid lines and corrosive noise. Juan Mendez aka Silent Servant keeps the atmosphere of the original intact but sets it amid delicate drifts of melody, finding brief flashes of warmth amid the shade.
