Clark - Turning Dragon album FLAC

Clark - Turning Dragon Chris Clark signed to Warp when he was still at university and released a debut album (Clarence Park) that drew comparisons with the label’s finest, Autechre and Aphex Twin. And so Turning Dragon drops with a thud, heavy with expectation and yet shrouded in mystery. The packaging is dark and abstract, and the track names suitably opaque (‘Violenl’,.

Clark's Turning Dragon is the sort of ear-puncturing blast of four-on-the-floor electronica that negates headphones, seated listening, resting heart rates, and neighborly civility. Flipping that old Nick Drake adage, even when played quietly, the record just sounds loud. This isn't to say the record isn't scattered with moments of cloud-parting beauty, but even a track like "Mercy Sines," which appropriately begins and ends with merciful chiming sine waves, eventually ruptures into static-drenched discord and melody-free bass slams.

Reviews about Clark - Turning Dragon (4):
By far my favorite Clark release. Part of it is due to being the first Clark album I heard, but even after eating up the rest of his discography, I still come back to Turning Dragon the most. This is a monster of an album. Harsh, pounding rhythms, usually in a broken beat style but occasionally 4 on the floor. Glitches, squelches, distorted percussion, creepy fx and vocal slices chopped up and mixed together in an unsettling yet insistently danceable fashion. It's hard to stay still during this album; even if the track isn't necessarily club material, your body will still be forced to respond in whatever way it can. Angry, inventive, spastic, unrelenting, and an incredible ride. A must own.
Fully agree. This album is a BEAST. "At least 10 words must be entered. Please enter at least 3 more." ok: BANGING, NO MERCY, AWESOME. wait ok it's 4 already.
Clark’s fourth album really stirs things up, almost every track has serious muscle behind it. ‘Turning Dragon’ is without a doubt a typical Clark album (breakdowns, shifts in rhythm, stuttering synths), only is it far more heavier than any other of the man’s releases. The seconds pound on with the occasional breather, only to pick up pace again. Some compositions bare resemblance to a crossbreed of early Luke Slater and µ-Ziq - covered in rich Clark gravy. ‘Turning Dragon’ stands for surprising skull-drilling that never bores and makes one curious of what else is up Chris Clark’s sleeve!
What I have to admit on opening is that Clark's previous album "Body Riddle" is a masterpiece and probably my all-time favourite record. I've always respected the man because of his both fantastic skills and ability to create haunting, eerie landscapes that know no music borders. While being obviously influenced by electronic kings (many of whom have recorded for Warp, too), Chris Clark definitely has his own, unique sound and is willing to evolve in any direction he feels like visiting. "Turning Dragon" confirms Clark's brilliance and openmindness. This is not a specific genre, but a jaw-dropping synthesis of many: minimal techno, rave, glitch, IDM ... There are even ambient and electro passages! Everything is nicely distorted, dysharmonic, dirty, noisy and at times intentionally detuned. But just beneath the dirty surface lies good old Clark, only changed. For better? If not, then certainly for other. Personally I admire "Turning Dragon", because it is as surprising as great. Dancing has not been this paranoid since ages!
