Staking out the area between fucked-up dub and funked-up techno with a dash of house thrown in, G-Type Nerve Agent is the debut release from Sydney-based electronic leisuremeister Nerve Agent. Nerve Agent is the latest project from electronic music veteran Scot McPhee, a former member of Now:Zero from 1991 to 1996 and more latterly known as Victor X-Ray. As well as producing his own music, Scot McPhee has compiled several classic Clan Analogue compilation albums, including Aphelion One and Clan Analogue In Version.
G-TYPE NERVE AGENT contains 12 tracks — 8 original tracks by Nerve Agent and 4 remixes by Telemetry Orchestra, Disco Stu, Atone, and Sobriquet. The CD is attractively packaged in a “Digipack”, styled by Rachel Honnery in a maximum-danger red chemical-warfare scheme
Stylistically G-TYPE NERVE AGENT occupies the area between fucked-up dub and funked-up techno with house influences. The remixes explore areas as diverse as the funkadelics of Atone, the lush textures that are the Telemetry Orchestra, mind-warping dub-o-phonics from Disco Stu, and the stripped back grooves of Sobriquet.
