Review: If you're looking for a release that touches on the harder end of techno while giving some nudging recognition to old school sounds, then Borger is for you. "Sperm In Space", a collaboration between Limewax & Cooh, is a heavy, distorted broken beat workout, similar in nature to Rodz Konez output, albeit less sinister. Meanwhile, the title track is based on metallic break beats, frenetic enough to work for a drum'n'bass DJ, and a scene-setter for the rest of the release. "Pectus" sees Cooh fly solo and mix up wide eyed melodies with distorted hardcore kicks and heavy siren riffs, while the duo go even further down the rabbit hole with "Gab5"; dense, dark and powered by high speed break beats, it makes for a disturbing update on classic hardcore.
Review: Everyone's favourite new wave skullstep referencing darkside D&B-ster comes up with more musical mayhem on Tsunami Audio. Title track "Nedal" displays Ivan Shopov's innate talents at their very best - think dark, desolate utterances from the off with a lonely vocal which fails to break through the incessant drums. "Drub" takes us onwards with violent, metallic snares and pummelling bass before moody and melodic "Back" takes things on a more musical tip, with shimmering instrumentals laid over industrial low-end factor and a murmuring vocal sample.
