Vessel and Container on the same bill? Sounds like a recipe for getting carried away. (Rimshot.) Anyway, this show is serious business, for it is MOTOR XXI, and Vessel (Sebastian Gainsborough) and Container (Ren Schofield) rank among this country’s most accomplished producers of dirty and dissonant techno. Vessel’s two albums for Tri Angle—Orders of Noise and Punish, Honey—possess an immaculate industrial grime, their tracks fusing ominous atmospheres and craggy textures. I’m probably not the only one who thinks that Vessel’s music could spice up an S&M porn flick—“Drowned in Water and Light” or “Red Sex,” say. Container’s beats hit with more force and propulsion than do Vessel’s, and his productions evoke construction and ecological devastation more than they do sexual activity. I think you’re still going to dig this Container fellow. Add the morbid, Carpenter-esque analog-synth machinations of Crypts’ Nick Bartoletti and the action-packed, alpha-male techno of Patternmaster, and you’re talking a night full of concussive catharsis.
