The use of broken and malfunctioning records and CDs by Cheapmachines represents the evil side of modern turntablism, a genre that’s becoming quite trendy in recent times. “Miracle surfaces” is ironically amusing and elegantly fastidious with lots of its hysterics sedated by funny loops, crunching skinning of vinyl and flexi discs, instant hiccups by cheap drum machines and esoteric-to-industrial cauldrons. It’s a spiky course, requiring Doc Martens for your brain to be fully captured, but there is some serious substance at the end of the road.
