Heatsick batters a solitary Casio through a myriad of effects, looping up a coarse, crisp and twinkling out-house music into a wonderfully queasy eternity, teasing out melodic and rhythmic mantras to an off-kilter, Burroughsian effect that WINS on the floor and never forgets to be lo-fi fun(k). Combining a palette of sources from early Chicago house mixtapes (in sound, texture AND mixing technique) through to musique concrète and psychedelia, Heatsick proposes a live dance music that expands and unlocks the senses. Give him time and his set can unfurl over several hours, straight busting the space/time continuum and spiralling off-grid into a Dionysian pleasure vortex, the whole club lost in the funky wormhole. Smitten outer limits noise boys and girls will know the man behind Heatsick from Birds Of Delay, but this is a unique dancefloor detour that finds its edifying drones in the twirl of a glitterball.
