Those who didn't even give Scotland a glance until Danny Boyle's gray-faced Trainspotting made heroin that much cooler would be surprised how much the U.S. Northeast has in common with the scrappy U.K. fighter. Under that tartan cover is a country as dissatisfied as we are and as musical as any laptop-toting college coed. Scots have even managed to churn out some of the world's deadliest techno while the rugged genre was still a Detroit sleeper on this side of the pond. Holding his producer badge the highest is Neil Landstrumm, the Edinburgh-born Brooklyn resident who ignited the European techno fire more than a decade ago. Like any good Scot, Landstrumm exorcises his demons in the most visceral fashion possible. Whether it's the throbbing, aggressive style of his early Peacefrog releases or the twisted dub-hop of his more recent Scandinavia Records work, Landstrumm always kicks out a cathartic dose of spastic percussion. If there were ever a time to engage in some all-night youthful rebellion, Landstrumm's only U.S. appearance is here to offer up a mind-numbing dance floor explosion. (S.V.)
