After countless singles, LPs, and performances around the world, James Donadio is back with his first full-length effort since 2014's Petit Cochon (SP 035LP). Ghost Detergent is a consummate amalgam of fried gear, chunky bass, and fractured samples. Donadio's extraordinary ability to fuse his wide range of influences into a collection of lucidly executed and concise jams has reached its pinnacle. Ghost Detergent is a rhythm-centric maze of fluctuating patterns adorned with crooked fills and raucous melody. Tracks like "Nerve and Gall" and "Government Wrecker" stomp with a coarse, grinding fuss gliding on swinging, bottomless bassline turbulence. Locked-in, puzzle-like sampling patchwork collides perfectly with an array of rogue electronics, creating a sense of daring nearly extinct in the age of gridlocked, BPM-steady 12"s. Tracks like "Pregnant Toad" and "Cheap Amplifiers" play out like a Def Jam bonus beat with ripping, cough syrup-slathered DMX snare sounds. Ghost Detergent has an unhinged, unrelenting churn that stares squarely into a personal vacuum, remaining uninfluenced by the influencers and unflinching in its originality. Neither bird nor egg are relevant here. Prostitutes has managed to carve out its own tenure in contemporary electronic music by delivering in live performance and by shattering expectations on records. Never does the aesthetic outweigh the content, and Ghost Detergent delivers only the wheat and none of the chaff. Conceived, recorded, and mixed at Elbur House, 2014. Mastered by Giuseppe Tillieci at EnnisLab, Rome.
