Proper World Unknown tackle here from T J Fairplay and Bodyhammer resident Matilda on the always excellent Astro Lab Recordings label. In the offing for some time, the 12" actually arrives at a pertinent moment with Fairplay having enjoyed a superlative twelve months thanks to his role in The Asphodells alongside Andrew Weatherall. Both original productions here are the sort of slow techno that Dan Avery's been championing for a while, so it's no surprise to see the glum faced DJ and producer here on the B Side with a typically lysergic remix. It is however the accompanying "Ferox 2" from Lux resident Tiago that you need to check, betraying a mastery and understanding of rattling, soul-laden beatdown house music reminiscent of a forgotten Mahogani gem.
