It's another all-out, balls-against-the-wall savage session as Digital Terror unleash the fourth and final chapter of their half-decade celebration EP series. Konichi fires the starter gun with his gritty refix of Prestiges's fittingly titled "Hard" before up-and-comer Spaow takes the baton and runs with glitchy mischief. Further into the chaos we plunder with Dub Bezerka crushing Hoogs' "Heavy Mental" into a lean, minimal Phace-style neuro jump-up romp and Nu Elementz injecting an entire hornets nest into Telekom's "Nicky". Lowriderz have the honour of closing this epic, month-long anniversary mission with the roughest cut of the bunch: flipping Freek's "Kung Fu Is Banned" into a raw universal fighting talk, it's a suitably gnarly climax to a very well executed EP series. Bring on the 10 year celebrations.
If grinding, gratuitous jump up with a quirky, melodic twist is your thing then look no further than Telekom, who will satisfy all your needs with his unique brand of whomping mid range fury. Kicking off with the title track, "Secret Society" is all Hazard style B movie samples and juddering synth-driven beats. "Alien Intelligence" continues the story with spaced out SFX and pattering drums with aggressive stabs, whilst "You Can't Shoot Me" juxtaposes soaring flute melodies with pounding bass-driven moments. "Dynamite" restores the Heist-esque feel to things, before "Mortal Terror" rounds the EP off in true jump up style.
Junglists: this month your stars will lead you to great bangers from the long-standing UK bass comms expert Telekom. You'll meet a tall dark gully stranger who talks with a toxic bassline tongue ("Bulletproof"), you'll find inner peace through squelchy bass mischief ("Ego Trippers") and experience great fortune through elasticated low end of stuttering snares ("Absorbed") Later in the month you'll feel more energetic thanks to the hench D*Minds or Mampi style riff circa 2002 ("Pimpin") before concluding the month in blissed and blessy state of zen thanks to dusty chords and a sense-blurring drop ("1210 Technique") Thanks for choosing Junodownload horoscopes, see you next month.
Indiekai's rhetorical rampage from spring 2016 "Do You Feel The Bass" gets the treatment from a selection of Claw Hammerz' finest. Already an interesting track with its naked woodblock drop and trippy triplets, here we find Telekom giving it a neuro surcharge, Khemikal retaining the stripped back nature but with added alkaline aggressiveness and Projekt flipping it into a Dimension-level stepper. Trust us - drop any of these fresh versions and your floor will be feeling it.
