Credit00_ice_cream_1400x1400px_rgbOvertly “sexy” dance music is usually just one or two heavy breaths away from being irredeemably corny — a divide expertly navigated by Dresden’s Credit 00 (Alexander Dorn) in the intro to “Ice Cream.” Over funk vamps seemingly sourced from vintage softcore, a sweet-toothed sexpot pants, “Ice cream of all flavors, especially chocolate and vanilla… I’m so glad to be a woman. Delicious ice cream!” But what sounds like an exercise in Vaseline-lensed kitsch quickly turns much darker and weirder, as Dorn hones in on a sliver of the woman’s voice, halfway between a moan and an exhalation, and loops it into a hissing, insistent figure, less coquettish ribbon than dungeon manacles. The ensuing groove is a vision of acid house at its prickliest, all snapping woodblocks and staccato snares over chords with the dull gleam of an oil slick. The woman’s voice huffs away — “Vanilla… Vanilla…” — but her extended rapture, far from titillating, makes for the most paranoid take on le petite mort imaginable.
