Supernatural (DBSP)

Encoder is the latest dance-electro project from DJ Cable (of Chamber fame), UV programmer "Bruno," and a host of dark royalty from Cleveland to Germany. Mixing dance-floor EBM, industrial, and rhythmic noise, Supernatural lives up to the title of the standout track "Dancefloormotherfuckers" -- which appears in four versions, whipped into an orderly Teutonic frenzy by Terrorfakt and Schattenschlag.

The party gets looser on other tracks -- at 120 bpm, "Supernatural (Original Mix)" is better suited to the bedroom than the club. Raven-haired fetish icon Malice graces the cover, but she's the only feminine presence on the disc; Cable provides flat vocals of processed pain, and omnipresent goth star Razed in Black makes a guest appearance on "November," a club-ready seven-minute monster. Pulsing with creepy ambiance, most of the big, sexy 4-4 cuts clock in at 140 bpm, and Supernatural isn't just an album -- it's a workout.
