An interesting mix of influences indeed come together on this record, with Fehrplay essentially delivering a rocking bass weapon that could fit smartly into a trance set with the right finesse, while carrying a heavy techno influence too. ‘Rattata’ doesn’t know exactly what it wants to be, and it's all the more unique and exciting because of it.
Master of all things tech, Argy teams up with Re-tech for a monster release on Gearbox Digital, who have been flying the hard dance/ tech dance flag for a while now in the UK. Stripping things back here in true techno style with a simple yet effective melody, subby kicks on the main section before building up again with a triplets section for the final drop, when things get a bit more ferocious.
The Kelly Twins continue to blow my tiny little mind with their selections, turning up a lo-fi, boogie gem, an aerated romper and a sort of codeine dream sequence soundtrack from Creta Kano for their Happy Skull label’s sixth release.
"ONE OF YOU TURDS IS ABOUT TO GET SMACKED IN THE MOUTH" — hell, I'm a sucker for a great intro and I'm loving this daffy, goofy, B-movie-rap little gem. The last thing I'd expect from Toronto but there it is, backwoods-bound space-age boombap, Timbuktu, Chokeules and Savilion swapping rhymes with a beautifully nonchalant ease and charm that you can't buy or pre-program, but that oozes from every groove. Gonna go check out their latest 'Outer Limits' opus on Bandcamp right now and strongly recommend you do exactly the same. Oh Canada.
