Album Notes
Kevin Sawka | acoustic + electronic drums, samples, effects
Jeremy Lightfoot | electric basses, samples
Dave Z | analog + synth keyboards, samples

Drummer Kevin Sawka is a phenomenon and his ability to sustain the craziest tempos is a sight to behold.
-seattle weekly

The Machines may eventually win the day, but in the meantime Kevin Sawka's putting up a strong fight. The complexity of Sawka's drumming--a worthy challenge to the world's best drum+bass programmers-- gives Siamese the fuel to keep its live techno moving at breakneck speed.
-Willamette Weekly

. . .Kevin's resulting ability to run through endless high bpm breakbeat drills will be in demand for many years to come.
-the stranger

Unlike any other, this is live drum n bass. This band further exemplifies the humans' ability to reverse engineer their most favored dance musics and create a newform sound. Notice the dark and menacing jungle beats, as well as the mystical drum'n'bass -very advanced. Sawka's bionic mannerisms are of key note (implants?) -as these are not samples but complex drum patterns performed by the drummer on a drum set. As well, Lightfoot and Z's gifted rhythm provisions -frenetic super tempo rhythms and subsonic, modulating basslines (not unlike that of fellow pioneers PHOTEK, CLIFFORD GILBERTO, or AMON TOBIN)- fuel the psychotic throb of the band's beautifully linear sound. The live show further deconstructs a dj's drum'n'bass set by phasing in and out of different source material, fashioning a continuous seamless mix of new & recorded material and expanses of electronic improvisation.
