Impressively, the album was compiled with its creators working separately before combining their efforts, but it doesn’t show, such is their alchemy. The sound of controlled madness during the witching hour.
The Line of Best Fit

SCALPING’s world-creation on Void is engaging and welcoming while being both ecstatic and unnerving. What gives this record cohesion is its ability to freely blend sounds and be bold while maintaining its heart as a rhythmic electronic record that’s audibly bursting to be let loose on a live audience.

Loud and Quiet

Overall, Void is an accomplished work, a modernist genre splice that thrives in everything it attempts. Music from the in-between, this is the perfect soundtrack for existing in a very bleak world.


Forging a deep new sound, this Bristol outfit’s cohesive vehemence and vigour has produced something lithe, fleet-footed and constantly mutating.

Crack Magazine

Void is a record that writhes, contorts and throbs like a live show. Claustrophobic yet huge – it’s the sound of a rave crammed into a sticky, dark basement.

The project’s organic feel is particularly notable, a credit to the band’s talents and a seamless engineering/production approach.
SCALPING achieve perfect synergy between intensity and precision. With rigorous control, they choreograph chaos.

Favourites - Blood club, Caller unknown, Cloak & Dagger, Flashforward, Over the walls

Worth a listen


For those days when only a blend of Prodigy / Future Sound of London / Deftones / Slipknot / NIN and Massive Attack blasting through your headphones will work ... it does work, it really does!
