Punk funk outfit !!! find themselves remixed on this new EP from Warp, and it contains some of the most cutting-edge reworks we've heard in a while. Patrick Ford, Jim Eno and Mister Saturday Night's Alex Burkat all do their thing in fine style, rocking and shaking throughout, but the real jewels come from Proibito label head and all-round NY bad-boy Anthony Naples, and UK house-cat Maurice Fulton, who both deliver the goods in gargantuan proportions.
The UK's Patten duo have already appeared on London's timeless Warp stable, but this latest album truly feels like their most accomplished work to date. That's because this particular style of experimentalism is full of direction, nothing is used for the sake of it, and all their sounds are perfectly balanced with another. It almost feels like a mathematical ride through the deepest, most convoluted corners of UK bass music, an aspect of these tunes that we love. Moreover, they make total sense as one whole unit of sound and, rather than being disparate slices of leftfield, they move and evolve with each other for the whole duration of the album. We won't go into details because this is music to be interpreted freely, much like the majority of this label's never-ending pit of goodness. Recommended.
