Portland producer Consumer. (yes, period, like Adult.) favors the absurdist approach to electronic music. His spazzy, maximalist MO had a brief spurt of notoriety in the mid 1990s to early ’00s with the likes of Squarepusher, Jason Forrest, and Otto Von Schirach. This late in the game, though, few electronic musicians delve into that mad, convoluted steez that pushes excess and unpredictability to their limits. Consumer. releases like Fucket and CON/TRA immerse you in a hyperkinetic, disorienting soundworld that’s a rare, rude treat in this age where polite, pastel electronic music predominates. He merges sonic high jinks with catharsis like few Northwestern musicians working right now. DAVE SEGAL
