Emergency StairwayEditions Mego
***Emergency Stairway could have been THOUGHT BROADCAST's debut vinyl full-length. In fact, when commissioned in early 2012, only one 7-inch and two super-limited tapes were in existence, until some other label snapped to the finish with an even older commission. So, let's say an "almost-debut." Confused? Well, yes, that's probably the point. RAVI BINNING’s Thought Broadcast project oozes out a dank and confused audio experience isolated way beyond the city limits. A glance at the titles suggests a routing in the primeval real industrial mind-set, hooked up to classic dub sensibility. Listening to these fascinating recordings, one gets the impression something happened in the room that you are probably not supposed to know about, hinting at a twisted form of Aktionism. Beyond the analog grime (these tracks were delivered to label as cassettes, then carefully transferred and mastered at Dubplates and Mastering in Berlin) lays some real treats with "Orgone Theater" and "Portrait Heads" fitting neatly beside V.O.A.-era Cabs in your local disco. Simply put, a beautiful record.
