Cool Runnings since 2009, Shrust's PDD imprint continues to deliver the turbo-charged goods. The first in the German label's inaugural "This Is Jump Up" series, the titles and players it comprises says it all: Heist ignites the brutal bass bonfire with a classic early zeroes sound (think Twisted Individual for the modern day dance), he's followed by a slew of label regulars, each one vying for first place in the sharpest gunfinger world series: Zodiac goes all croaky bass, Tron dusts off the horror movie collection, Steampunk gets super-twisted with down pitched paranoid tones while Damage Report strip back the science for something more classical and lean. Last but not least Mq brings back the skank factor. Walloping.
Bull-charging into the ring with all the energy of a piston-powered house crusher, Steampunk returns to game with his biggest release to date. "Faster Faster" says it all with its Shot Down On Safari-era hookiness. The whole EP hits the senses with a sound that should resonate well with fans of Original Sin, Supreme Being and Taxman style grit; from the Clipzish Q&A on "Show Me What U Got" to the demonic battle jam "Apocalypse" via the absolute insanity bash "Clipped", this is an all-out wall-of-sound damage-fest. Tops off.
