DescriptionGet ready for some of the most stunning tracks yet to come from Carl Finlow aka Silicon Scally on his new and second release on Satamile "Bioroid". Glisten warm , funkyfied, driving sci/fi Electro for the breakbeat startrek kidsz at heart.
These tracks represent a entire new evolution of Silicon Scally's work, hybid Electro concepts. Supersized sounds and materfull production on all levels. Full mastering at the famous Frankford+Wayne mastering house in NY city , with uncompromising sonic quality.
Carl Finlow is apparently completely incapable of releasing a shitty album , although he's shed a bit of his brooding, corrosive Scallyness this time around in favor of kicking the crap out of the dancefloor. Finlows tracks, like "Population lll" and "Encapsulate," are too robo-funktastic to be denied full of good solid mechanical breaks. While the spacey-ness of the album doesn't drift as far into the subconscious as Dark Matter or Mr. Machine, cuts like "Moment" and "Interflection" carve a psychoactive electro niche that is uniquely Finlow.

iDJ magazine-UK Review of Silicon Scally Bioroid.
One of the most consistent producers of British electronic music, Silicon Scall's aka Carl Finlow returns here with a defiant counterpoint to the lowest common denominator perception of electro today, with ten slices of decidedly edgy, underground syncopation. Clearly relishing the chance to let rip, 'Bioroid' features little of the disco twitching accessibility associated with some of his other work; this one's for the heads, with distorted scrapes and razor-sharp beats placed very much at the fore. Thats not to say it lacks sphistication, however. Finlow's greatest skill lies in his ability to match crystal clear, complex tones with an instinctively rocking vibe, and while the album's occasional abrasiveness might prove a bit much for those with more melodious taste, there's no denying that the bowel-churning frequencies and deftly formed glitchy touches are leaps and bounds ahead of most pasty purist efforts. Simultaneously hyperactive and grounded, it throws a satisfying two fingered salute to those who take the name of 'real' electro in vain.
