Trent Reznor is the man he is today by cutting the cloth of industrial rock and dyeing it in one of the darker, subversive basins of electronica often creating new periods for himself with each subsequent release. Similarly, Matt Lange, who is more well known for his efforts on Mau5trap Records and Anjunadeep, consistently goes against the grain of dance music and often delivers tracks that lay eggs within the further corners of the subconscious; his work is intellectual, refined, and instinctual.
Matt Lange’s recent remix of “Discipline” off Nine Inch Nails’ The Slip is more in touch with his animal side, delving deep into the subterranean, dimly lit catacombs of dub and electro producing a slow-burn that glitches and throbs with sheer ferocity. Cerebral in its execution and delivering on NIN’s industrial edge, Lange transforms from techno connoisseur/ambient tastemaker to an electronic God – playing with our inner impulse to lash out and destroy the shackles that keep us binded.
