“Bulk Enrolment (extended mix)” by GROK ENROL & THE NU-THING
Dubtronica’s something you don’t hear bandied about too often. And more’s the pity. I was very fond of it a decade or so ago. But Grok Enrol – yeah, lame pun – offers Bulk Enrolment as a dubtronic track and right good it is.
Grok Enrol is one of those artists who operates in more than one guise. From Sheffield, Grok also operates as The Weird & Wonderful. But, to the track. Bulk Enrolment has lots of dub echo sat within taut guitar and clattering righteous beats. Fine example of dubtronica.
Blurb: New single from GROK ENROL & THE NU-THING, released November 18th on PREMONITION TAPES (PREM107) – download only.
Grok Enrol is a Sheffield based musician working under the guises of The Weird & The Wonderful, and also Grok Enrol & The Nu-Thing.
The Weird & The Wonderful is a homage to 1970’s German electronica, taking influences from Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Klaus Schulze and of course, Kraftwerk. Throw into the mix a dose of post punk electronics such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and The Human League. Finally season with ambient and minimalist influences such as Brian Eno and Philip Glass.
