The thing about the tunes on Long Island Electrical Systems is that they don’t come pre-loaded with grand intros or beatless moments of faux euphoria. Instead, they start with a gristly kick and unfurl gradually so that, before you know it, you’re in the midst of a psychedelic techno hailstorm and getting a contact high. There are lots of examples of this on the second comp from Ron Morelli’s label, which harbours artists making rough, gruff cuts with plenty of analogue crunch. Therein lies the label’s beauty, but also its downfall. The material may be too off the cuff for some, too awkward; but Morelli doesn’t give a shit. He actively dislikes clubs – but he’s managing to infiltrate them with this insurgent electronic music.
