Mojo Goro is thirsty... But don't get upset if he refuses your generous offer of a can of pop. His is a thirst more spiritual. A thirst, he tells us, that requires progress to be quenched, both personally and sonically. Ambition fulfilled: The beats on the reflective, synth-showered "Dissolved" only kick in right at the end. The stomps and scratchy loops on "This Mere Illusion" are delivered with a techno-like mentality. "Mountain Call" takes some of the common sounds employed by the tropical movement and remoulds them into a cut that's half ghetto, half cosmos. Complete with remixes from Tony Goods (power trap) and Blastah (future classic electro), if your soul isn't quenched from this you need to cut down on the pop.
Bulgarian badness: "Pure Spirit Riddim" opens with two minutes of Eno-ish atmos before dropping into a planet-aligning riff where the slight detuning creates a tense allure. "This Is How We Do" is a much darker jam with its skid-mark textures and angular rhythm. The final original is the trappist spooky-jam "Justice Riddim". Supported by Amon Tobin, dial 808-Boneshaker for full details on how this will affect your health. Remix-wise Bios flips "Pure Spirit Riddim" into a dancefloor slapper, Copocut twist "Justice Riddim" into a post-club chiller while Dev79 and El Carnicero slam 70 shades of hardcore into "This Is How We Do". Full strength.
