NATHANIEL YOUNG, aka GUILT ATTENDANT, lives and works in NYC, where he also produces music under the monikers HOFMANN, KOHL, MORAL EXTRICATION, and RICHARD P., and runs the Severed Mercies and Blankstairs platforms for art and music alongside his design duties for Dais and Hospital Productions among many other publications and labels. Suburban Scum is his devilishly detailed debut of girder-strength techno for Hospital Productions, forged in the image of late '90s hard techno and reverberating strongly with prevailing trends. It's inspired and informed by the artist's deeply held urge to undo the dogma instilled by his religious Christian upbringing. and, as such, it expresses a sense of free will within the context of Satan's fall from grace, fully grasping techno's repetitive excess as a potential path to hedonism, freedom and other ungodly matters. Recorded between 2016-2019, the eight tracks of Suburban Scum find Guilt Attendant in cold control of his agency. While they may possibly make crowds consider their own relationship to god, especially in his use of sampled sermons by his former preacher that crop up throughout, and most strikingly on the closing "Severe Mercy," the majority are more likely to make dancers slam the walls and trample a hole in the 'floor. Firmly modeled in the image of classic Regis, Silent Servant, Steve Bicknell, Adam X, Ancient Methods.
