Commonly seen sharing space with Killawat, Ipman has links to Pinch having committed one of the earliest releases on his techno-focused Cold Recordings label back in 2013 as well as contributing a production to the Pinch B2B Mumdance mix CD from last year. This Regicide release formalises links between Ipman and Tectonic and arrives ahead of a mooted debut album from the producer for the label later this year. The title track is a rugged ode to hardcore jungle badness that fits the current direction of Tectonic to a tee whilst the flips sees a new version of "Ghostrunner", Ipman's high pressure contribution to that Pinch B2B Mumdance mix.
Tiga has a long been an advocate of vocal tracks; apart from Sunglasses At Night, one of his other main break through records was the androgynous vocals on the Chicago-influenced Pleasure from the Bass. On his latest release, the Turbo boss explores a similar approach; the title track features rolling snares and a gritty bass, but what sets it apart is the camp, coquettish vocal. Maintaining this theme is Butch, who delivers a wild '80s warehouse acid' remix, its drum rolls and spine-tingling 303 sounding like a mixture of Hardfloor and Lil' Louis. Jasper James' remix is the most contemporary-sounding, leaning more towards minimal techno than Chicago house.
