Low Entropy’s 4-track EP combines hard politically charged breakcore, broken beats and noise and a passionate intensity. Anarcho-Psychotic was one of his first releases before he took a hiatus for several years; since re-emerging around 2010 he has released an abundance of mostly digital releases.

Original label info from 2002, when this excellent record was first released: Hailing from Hamburg, Low Entropy is one of the most exciting young producers of phuturistic breaks and hardcore. A riot of noise and beats in shimmering clear production, Anarcho-Psychotic is aptly named, but nevertheless also features moments of tranquility.


Recycle Your Ears writes: “This is the second time I am exposed to music by LOW ENTROPY, after the split 12inch that this Hamburg based musician was sharing with CDATAKILL. LOW ENTROPY has both sides of the record to express himself this time, with this new 12inch that fits perfectly in the rest of the Praxis discography. Past the colorful sleeve, what you get is gritty, sometimes furious and quite noise breakcore. Things are quite clear with ‘The Truth’, which might be my favorite track from this record: meshed rhythms, broken patterns, high pitch noise and an ever changing tracks full of little details form a strong and very tasty dancefloor piece. The following ‘The Agony Of Every Day Life’ is less hectic and heavy, juggling with a deep bass drum and a myriad of sci-fi effects. Well articulated witht the previous track, this one adds to the dark and broken side of LOW ENTROPY, in a relatively typical breakcore way. On the second side, ‘Symphony Of Creative Destruction’ is a track that reminds me a lot of SOMATIC RESPONSES, for it has the same tones and lines. A rather gritty beat gives the pace, but the hear of this piece is the nice, tweaked and oh-so Somatician tune. Very nice, if not really original, this is a track that has its momentum when the beats kick in. The other track on the second side is harder in sounds, but shorter. It is far noisier and its beats are not as heavy, being extremely scrapping and distorted, ending in a nice and ear blasting way to conclude this ep. All in all, this is a must for every DJ, at least for the first tracks on each side. Then, the Praxis freaks out there will probably not be able to resist the first release of this label in a little while. And finally, this is a well done, massive but varied enough break record, so any enthusiast of the genre should probably check it out. ” (quoted in digitalworldnet catalog 2003)
