Spain's Hnoize cooks up a fiery electro storm on Distortion with his latest, "Looking Holywood". Driven by a catchy vocal that reminds of Steve Miller's "Abracadabra", Hnoize lets the bass shine as it swaps between sub punishing lows and squelchy, gritty highs over a sick bed of club-happy beats. Mutantbreakz drops a well-suited mix that adds a high-pitched Dutch lead and some breakbeat snares.
Vibrant party vibes abound as Hungary's Kid Panel becomes Kid Panel Beater, smashing out a distinct groove with his trusty funk hammer. Filtered guitars and a lolloping bassline work their charm over some rock-solid beats as the fusion effortlessly hypnotises. If you enjoyed Slyde's early work, you best jump on this. Two fine remixes follow; Hexadecimal gets his wobble on and creates sound that conjures up fine memories of Mason's "Exceeder". B-Phreak, meanwhile, gets all edgy and saw-toothed over a chop-slapping tropical beat. Three totally different vibes; one exceedingly heavy release.
