‘Drokk’ Music Inspired By Mega-City One
by Geoff Barrow
Released: Apr 2012
Inspired by the British comic-book character Judge Dredd and the metropolis he patrols, Mega-City One, Drokk is the work of Geoff Barrow (Portishead, Beak>) and film composer Ben Salisbury. But don't expect trip-hop ambience or sweeping strings. Instead, the two get deep into the circuits of their analog synthesizers to produce a dystopian array of buzzing, throbbing, coldwave drones somewhere between Klaus Schulze and Cabaret Voltaire.
