Budapest/Hungary fall 2015, industrial district, hypogeal quarters (“sedition station”), nemesis pariah sage Kikanju Baku & a rogue-cell of Anti-Listener enthusiasts/stentorians are gathered on the cusp of a seismically dramatic, irreversible eruption & parturition that is about to be realized in retaliation to institutionized injustice, mega-malfeasance, hyper-hypocrisy, deliberate degeneracy, rampant nonchalant corporate, fiscal & political criminality/financialization/misrule/usury, automation, technological encroachment & dehumanization, truth-impairment, anthropocentrism & catastrophe-consignment (particularly as perpetrated by the Western World). A radical rebuke/repudiation/retaliatory-reflex to explicitly inveigh “economic growth” & “development” along with Globalization, called-out for the fucking mega disaster/super-nadir that it is.
Nabeg (which is Chechen for a kind of traditional “full scale raid”) is the first official ejection from the “Enclave for Aberrational Expostulation” (EAE), a pan-European, Russian & ex USSR states collective led by Kikanju Baku, fulminating in Flensecore, Apoplexy & radically deviating adaptions of vigorous & severe Noise/Free Smolder permutation & progression. Sonics aside, this organization wished to categorically condemn, reject, oppose & decry the ultra-shit-bag suit-and-tie war-mongers who are happy to foment conflict, war & division between Europe/the West & Russia for their own enrichment, economic advantage or power related perversion. Nabeg was/is really about saying – we would far rather kill you pernicious meddling cunts in power than each other for your gratuitous internecine folly, & is an irenic vehicle of homologation, unison & creative-cohesion between Russia-Ukraine-Europe-Britain under a “people not politics” principle.
The noise/music/energy asserts its own genome, having clawed its way out of maverick strains & draconian derogations of Noisecore, Noisegrind, Free Jazz/Avant-Garde, Off-Road, Breakcore, Jungle & Glitch, & some feuding lawless fiefdom of de-facto Noise, Extreme Improv, harsh distortions, Industrial & Extreme Electronics miscegenation & FX heavy, antiphonic electric bass/guitar rend & rive rictus, not to mention the most strenuous & stentorious quarters of Psychedelia . Extended influence & origin can be attributed to Gunk, Poise Spore, Riot Gear, Fray, Drill n’ Waste, No-Skool-Noyzcore, Abnorm & Farrago, specifically from the Kikanju initiative & his endowment of unique, supra customized, exacerbated & amplified formulas & freshly conceptualized genres & peregrine parallax.
This new bestiary encompasses an emphatically original breed of “Fray”, a kind of live extemporaneous Breakcore/extreme Drum n’ Bass with harsh, distorted & FX addled guitars or bass, assaulting with rapid, mangled discordant live Drill n’ Waste – an alternative fast & nasty Break Beat that veered well away from the classic samples/styles & spun its own garbled beats/genre & rag-tag milieu. One of Kikanju’s previous groups “Down With the We$t” terrorized almost exclusively squat parties & illegal raves/warehouse parties around London from around 2008-2012 (or somethin’?), shocking revelers with absolutely absurd speeds, frenetics & abnormal, pulverizingly raucous & rancorous sounds & stridency, always with the same line-up of Kikanju & his gypsy assailant on guitar, which included shows orchestrated by the notorious, hardcore unruly Anarchist syndicate Scum Tech (got to luv those mf’s).
By contrast, Nabeg’s construct is much less musical, much less coherent & much more dense, truculent, complex/detailed/serpentiform, with practically zero hand-holds, no straight/consecutive rhythms/riffing & no “dance” element beside the extreme Breaks, which are so gravely fractured/corybantic & bellicose that the “dance” semantic is probably completely inapplicable. Furthermore, despite Kikanju being steeped in Gunk, No-Skool-Noyzcore & Noisegrind (as well as a good dose of participating members)), absolutely no Blast Beats, Skull-Stove/D-Beats, Tatsumaki/Blur Beats are performed in Nabeg. The ambition, fully realized, was to eschew this obvious & overused commodity for generating speed & intensity & devise something totally uncharted. Everything had to come from “elsewhere” &/or be endogenerated (as was the case with most of it). Riot Gear, Fray, Scolopendra, gravely mutilated Turbo Tempo Jazz/Swing, extreme Breaks/Drill n Waste & other hysterical hybridizations/bastardizations/inflammations & exacerbations would have to be splurged, spliced & splintered.
Whatever the circuitous & tortuous details of the groups conceptual, anatomic & functional miscellany/propulsion are, the result is an absolutely incomparable & empirically unsurpassed murrain of indescribable extremity, Anti-Listener outrage & indignation that routs its own territory & definition – Flensecore &/or Apoplexy.
