Review: Kaiju is Japanese for strange beast. We can't confirm whether Kaiju is strange or not. And is it really our place to say? Who's to say what's strange and what's normal in these hectic, stressful times? What we can be sure of is the solidity and intrigue of this hissing, slithering double slice of moody, snake-like dubstep. Lead track "Close Break" is a sludgy slo-mo wonderland decorated with soft croons that call a certain Horace Andy to mind. Atmosphere-setting stuff, think more traditional dub than dubstep. Meanwhile track two "Belcanto" is a more contemporary pace-setter. Palpitating bass licks the kick drum up and down as eerie cries and moans whisper above the darkness. Strange vibes indeed.

Review: Kaiju steps up to Kryptic Minds' imprint for his second release, and it's an equally dark and demonic affair as his first. Lead cut "Silverfish" rolls on some fantastically warped kicks that double-up mid-bar creating a funky momentum and unique groove. With simple splashes of old school synths on occasional fills, the track retains its mystery and never stoops into a formulaic territory. "Lone Wolf" is a moodier affair. A long pad-soaked intro leads into a minimal pattern of bass, kick and alien sub low slurs. Use this as a warm up, then hit the peak time with the lead track. Tasty.
