"It is no wonder that BIINDS asked fellow Industrial / Hip-Hop pioneer DÄLEK to remix TITAN. DALEK has been active since the 90’s creating dark and dystopian visions with acerbic tongued lines and presaged the popularity of blending noise and rap by about 20 years.
On the video for TITAN (please do mind the seizure warnings) we hear BIINDS sculpt guitar feedback into an ambient loop before soothing vocals cut through mechanical chatter to deliver a grave warning. We see ghosts and ghostly apparitions float into our visual field accompanied by a discomforting visual shudder that hurts but makes it impossible to look away. Alien structures begin forming out of the heavy darkness. A sense that these primal shapes have always been floating in the periphery of our liminal awareness. Beats begin picking up. A luxurious and noise driven snare that approximates a boom bap happening somewhere in the universe. A skeleton floating through space while at a piano plays us out.
The way that DALEK pulls this already dark composition under thick blackness while still balancing an aural softness through the vocals on “TITAN” is uncanny." - Tome To The Weather Machine (UK)
