Format: Audio CD
‘Drop the Vowels’ is the debut album from Millie & Andrea, better known as Andy Stott and Miles Whittaker who is one half of Demdike Stare. They’d collaborated on a few 12″s as Millie & Andrea for Modern Love’s sublabel Daphne over the past few years.

The opening ‘Gif Riff’ starts proceedings with some unexpected indian chanting and gamelan music. Things get heavy with ‘Stay Ugly’, a heavily compressed bass track which starts with a scuffing noise, metallic beats and heaving distorted bass. Its an awkward but exhilarating listen, continually dismantling itself into incoherent rhythms but manages to be remain tight. There is a distinct jungle theme running throughout this album, with ‘Temper Tantrum’ a clear bassweight floor filler. ‘Spectral Source’ is of a similar ilk, using a more unusual puncuated rhythm.

Stott and Whittaker really turn on the style with an absolute bastard of a track with the aptly named ‘Corrosive’. Darkcore electro permeates the spaces until some grubby dungeon bass and analogue bleeps click into gear. It strips down to silence before an enormous scuzzed up, messed up, off-the scale bass stab pounding mercilessly, flooring you with enough ammo to flatten Godzilla! All the music that preceded it is brought back, mixed into an electrifying frenzy of noise and primitive bass.

‘Drop the Vowels’ is a bare drum and bass track slowly gathering momentum, before some darkcore menace and incessant drum breaks pile on the pressure. ‘Back Down’ is a chilling slice of dub, a slow roller thats full of percussive atmosphere and friction. ‘Quay’ ends the album, a mournful ambient track full of grace and mystery. Its a perfect end to a quite stunning album.

Incredible 29 May 2014
By R. Mutt - Published on
I can appreciate Andy Stott's knackered style and Demdike Stare's terrifying soundscapes, but what works better for me personally is sheer beat-heavy mayhem. And both parties - Andy Stott (AKA Andrea) and Demdike Stare's Miles Whitaker (AKA Millie) bring it hard on this collaboration.

To my ears, this sounds more like Andy than Demdike, but you can tell he is stirring the pot with an extra pair of hands. From the gorgeous, glass-smoothness of Stay Ugly, through the bombast of Corrosive, all the way up to the found-sound symphony of Quay, this album wastes no time on its journey through the depths of wall-shaking bass and rapid fire drums. From the first listen this album immediately ranked up there with Andy's best, bringing some flavors from the Merciless days back to the fore. It's head-nodding, thought-provoking paradise, dragged across the pavement and served on a dirty platter. Don't sleep on this one...

When my vinyl copy arrived, it unexpectedly included a CD of Millie & Andrea singles from past years. Cool bonus.
