Portion Control - Progress Report 1982-1986 2LP

This material from PORTION CONTROL clearly demonstrates their early experimentation both as ‘musicians’ and with at the advent of analogue electronic machines. The eclectic material ranges from cassette portastudio material recorded in Peckham and Kennington, South London to high end studio recordings.

The punk roots show as PORTION CONTROL demonstrate unrivalled creativity breaching the gap between UK industrial, early ambient and the formative signs of electronic dance music. The music features rising appegiators, proto bass lines (a true PORTION CONTROL signature) dark sound design and recurring beats and rhythms... many elements that became the bedrock of future darker electronic musicDuring this highly charged period PORTION CONTROL established themselves at the forefront of the Formative, Underground UK Electronics scene
