Definitely "Maybe"... Eternal Muzik continue to crunch into the new year with four killer cuts from three killer artists. Asylum takes the lead with two caustic steppers: "Maybe" is pure groove poison with its jagged dynamics and alarming darkness while the sinewy step-based "Sinister" allows MC Kolapse the space to spill his demonic tones. Deeper again we find DJ Rodeo in fine jittering, off-beat form on "Shoot Me" and Traumatize closing the show with a riff-focused cut that wouldn't go amiss in a Randall set. Reference points don't come any higher.
No drama, here's Trauma... And he's here to make you question every fibre of your existence. "Selfish" sets the scene with its all-out sandpaper riff and sudden swoop into ravey bliss on the breakdown. "Lies" takes a more leftfield route with a Serum-style slimy Q&A while "Code Red 2017" dusts off the chainsaw and cuts us all down a peg or three. Finally we hit "Artificial". The stankiest stinkier of the set; one buzz on those alien bass textures and you'll be speaking in tongues.
