Rabit and Dedekind Cut (fka Lee Bannon) Preview ‘R&D’

Some music is meant to turn up to. Some music is meant to make you weep with emotion. Rabit and dedekind cut (the artist fka Lee Bannon) make music meant to blast holes through traditional expectations and thus subvert the musical commodity marketplace. Different strokes for different folks.

Premiered via BBC Radio 1, “Side A.” of the two producers’ collaborative project R&D spans an expansive 12 minutes. Though Bannon’s been playing with experimental and industrial genres the past few years during DJ sets—the whole point of his dedekind cut moniker—it seems a work that fits more naturally into Rabit’s prior discog. Take, for example, his previous collab with Chino Amobi, the terrifying and futuristic “THE GREAT GAME : FREEDOM FROM MENTAL POISONING(The Purification of The Furies).” More like a manifesto for a dystopic late capitalism translated into sonic structure, “Side A.” hums with the same desperation and industrial immediacy. The full release will be out next week, and can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp. Stream the track below, time back guaranteed if it fails to melt your synapses.
