Review: One of the key Visionquest members delivers an EP full of differing moods and emotions. Is "Haters" the producer's response to internet trolls? It certainly sounds so, with paranoid, shuffling drums and heavy bass licks leading into eerie synth passages. "Freaks" sounds like Curtiss is documenting his experiences of playing in clubs, with sweat-soaked vocals going on about 'I get down like a freak' to a dank, acid-fuelled groove. However, it's "Body Twitch" that impresses most: its building bassline and swinging, shuffling drums play host to one of the rudest lyrics in tehcno: "I'll be working like we're making kids/let me make your pussy twitch." Naughty!
Review: There's going to be plenty of heat surrounding this mix-up from hot US DJ crews Wolf + Lamb and Soul Clap, and it's easy to see why. As commercially released DJ mixes go, it's exceptional. Packed with fresh material and refreshingly eclectic, it sprints between tracks - both upbeat and downtempo - at a breathless pace. From sparse nocturnal house and Arp-heavy noughties boogie to dubbed-out grooves, space-age electro and sweeping cinematic instrumentals, this installment of DJ Kicks has it all. Hell, there's even a spot of pedal steel skank from Slow Hands. With a cultured, considered feel and all manner of unreleased audio delights from the Wolf + Lamb family, it's an outstanding hour of entertainment.
