DJ Home Movies Nice tunes to belt out on a set when you need to rub in some fuzzy techno and rounded-off noise. Though if you're like me, you'll probably go heads-over for "H.T.M.D.M.L", where Hollywood hacker scenes and pulled-back powernoise combine into a singular, unyielding, crushing rhythm. Something to lay waste to the warehouse with. Favorite track: H.T.M.D.M.L..

Medical Records presents the third release in our Transfusions 12” singles series. Certain Creatures (born Oliver Chapoy) currently resides in Brooklyn, NY but has a career dating back to the early 90’s. He has roots in the Miami hardcore scene that evolved into post-rock and even electronic pop (Warm Ghost). He began exploring electronics as Certain Creatures in 2013 with a 12” on Styles Upon Styles with guest vocals from Stuart Argabright which led to Oliver producing the 2014 Black Rain comeback record on Blackest Ever Black. In 2015, Oliver created a lush and enthralling LP Vipassana, also released on Styles Upon Styles. For this particular release for Transfusions, Oliver sought to step out of his production bias comfort zone by recording live takes with minimal editing and production in order to maintain a dirty, raw, haze-filled warehouse aesthetic. Mission accomplished! The 12” contains 5 tracks total of uncompromising techno which we are ecstatic to unleash on the world. Presented on classic 160gram black vinyl in our Transfusions 12” sleeve. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK. Crucial material for fans of Surgeon, Regis, as well as labels such as Downwards, Mote-Evolver, and the like.
