Oi! That badman AT is up on Project Allout blud! Get to know! The neo grime fantasist drops four rough and ready bangers that carry the UK bass heritage to higher grounds. Title track "Bulldog" is a badass, curb side jungle cut for the heads, while "Proper Stuff" goes more sci-fi on those rave stabs, "The Spy" lurks in the corner behind the speakers with a bit of redeye going through its core, and "Robin Hood" pumps out the classic UK grime trumpet for the big win. Heavy duty gear.
He/aT is another project from Chris Finke, the UK DJ/producer responsible for the Bodyjack alias. As this release on Bas Mooy's label shows, it is dedicated to gritty, lo-fi techno and a disregard for political correctness. Both of these values are in abundance on opening track "I've Never Been To Bed With An Ugly Girl But I've Woken Up With A Few". Loose, industrial drums beat manically as Finke grapples with droning textures. "Live & Don't Learn" is similarly minded with acrid acid lines unfolding over a primitive backing, while on the title track, Finke delivers a slightly more conventional loop techno workout. It's only a temporary blip though and "Thy Will Be Done" is a wonky arrangement that recalls the offbeat brilliance of Neil Landstrumm.
