Path To Exctatic Life (Pixelord remix) - (4:44) 125 BPM
Review: Rolling deep with Paris's subversive M-Town Clew, French grime beat carver Lil Crack unleashes his generous (Re)Sources debut. Resonating with the Spookys and Sh?ms of the scene, there's a crisp iciness while still retaining a level of groove and funk: "Inner Fight"'s eerie insistency and steel yard clangs on the rhythm, the wavy barbed dream of "Path To Ecstatic Life" or the paranoid, twisted rises and peaks of "Clausevitz Abstraction". Lil Crack...Moorish.
John Vitesse - "Bloom Doom" (Vocals By Oklou) - (3:46) 136 BPM
Review: The (Re)Sources label is still relatively young in terms of releases and artists, but they've already instilled a sense of reliability from our viewpoint, particularly for the diversity AND quality of their output, whether that be house, techno, or straight-up bass. This is their first compilation yet, an eight-track spew of all sorts of forward-thinking beats named Club Hexagon Vol.1. Chaams' opener is a twisted pile of bass and morphing samples, and other stand-outs include the techno-minded "Diamonds Foot" by Sheas Drunk, Tommy Kid's gunshot ride "Shanghai", and the moody, deep bass weight of "Bloom Doom" by John Vitesse. Hold tight for the second chapter!
