Two years after "Utopia", 16PNT has finished the 2nd chapter of his book with "Postnuclear Brutalism Funk Stories". "Evilution" is a statement in his very own way indeed, mastered again by DJ Hidden, whom he credits as a major influence, which is true in the sense that 16Pad Noise Terrorist presents Drum'n'Bass with a strong industrial, dark and experimental edge. Candy is concerned with contradictions, the underlying question is how we develop, if we just keep on going as usual - well, you guessed it, evolution turns foul, and the result is "Evilution". The album also establishes strong ties to the debut, whose album title now appears as a track title- as well as it's antithesis, the dystopia. Dystopian visions actually seem the 16Pad Noise Terrorist's preoccupation, but if "Utopia" was an Orwellian boot stamping in your face, "Evilution" depicts a more refined "Brave New World" with all its stupefying soma effects - even though the stench of books set on fire at "Fahrenheit 451" is omnipresent. Generally, the tempo is somehow curbed, and even melodies find their way into the tracks. But don't worry - there's enough tough Darkstep to be found, and the body fluids already start to warm with "Wasp", and are kept boiling throughout the album with "Le Petit Consommateur", "We Are All Junkies" and so on. On the way you will also meet a variety of out-of-the-way pieces: A conceptual track is "Humback Symphobia", which strangely misses a "p", but nevertheless features the famous chants of the magnificent animals who are subject to whaling. "Abyss" is not only the most experimental track of the lot, but also features spoken word phrasing by Boris May of Klangstabil in a nightmarish slasher atmosphere. "Metamorphosis" has the voice of evil giving some incomprehensible commands, and it shapeshifts in speed and atmosphere constantly, while "Planned Obsolescense" is probably the most clearcut club track among the lot. "Dystopia" works at Trip Hop/Dubstep speed, and here the evil keeps ranting atop a stomach-churning distorted wobble bass. The album closes with "Darkest Utopia", generating a dehumanized, hostile atmosphere with metallic sounds and shredded speech bits. "Evilution" is not easily digested for sure, but it's well worth exploring, it provides food for thought, but also a vibe for moving. Candy Schlueer proves he has defined a distinct style of Drum'n'Bass for 16Pad Noise Terrorist and will earn tons of due respect for his project with his sophomore album!
