Review: Agressor Bunx are two men who seriously know how to produce a Neurofunk track and they've proven this time and time again, with lots of very successful Eps and an absolutely insane debut album. They're back on regular home Eatbrain for this next four-tracker, all of which absolutely slap in every kind of way. Huge basses, intense build ups, punchy drums, broken sonics and an all-round sense of perverse energy - neuro doesn't get better than this.
Review: Agressor Bunx come from the beautiful, beleaguered capital of Ukraine, Kiev. A killer stepper immediately breaks out in the form of title track "Wish Killer", blending techy vibes with sci-fi horror sampling and dark, dread-filled bass. Things brighten up considerably for the flip though, and "The Tearz", contrary to its downbeat title, is a strangely chirpy number, somewhere on the melancholy side but still rolling along fresh and bright, perfect as a set closer. Two sides of the coin, one D&B outfit well worth checking out.
Review: Neuro influences get turned up to the max from these Ukranian noisemakers. Fairly new on the scene but no less brash because of it, both tracks on this blistering release are harder than granite and icier than a freak Antarctic snowstorm. Referencing everyone from Misanthrop to Phace and Optical, it's an uncompromising and impressive take on neurofunk in 2013. No less damaging than its predecessors, "Fade To Black" especially has the razor-sharp edge to take dancefloors past breaking point, with cinematic musicality that proves these producers aren't just in it for the breaks - although there's plenty of those too.
Review: Young Signal's making all the right signs and sines right now. Barely 18 and he's already fine-tuning a crisp, spacious sound, variety and detailed mixdown signature. Most importantly... the funk is abundant. There's a natural groove to both "Parallax" and "Ten Paths" that's not dissimilar to Break just slightly darker. Elsewhere "Downfall" is reminiscent of "Oblique" in its icy soulful way but with delicate vocals from Zoe Klinck while "Fearless" takes note from techno with its staccato riff and tippy percussive off-beat clips. Teaming up with equally on-point and hyped act Aggressor Bunx for the finale, "Isolation Cell" hits with the darkest design of the EP Vicious and rattling with an electrified aesthetic. Another surefire sign of a bright future for Signal.
