Review: The latest release on Drumcode is a coming together of the new and the established. In the contemporary corner is Rodolfo Wehbba, a Brazilian producer with a multitude of Eps on Tronic and Drumcode, while ghetto legend DJ Deeon represents the old guard. It's a great meeting of minds, as the title track provides a fusion of firing percussion and grimy bass over a primal rhythm. "Third Wave" leans more towards contemporary techno with searing chord builds, while on "Streamroller" the pair opt for a stripped-back approach that features acrid filters. Lastly, the pumping drums and moody sub-bass of "Another Mistake" has an evocative Detroit techno feeling.
Review: Label boss Scuba dons his SCB alias to deliver this split release with Wehbba, who has previously released on high-profile labels like Drumcode and Tronic. That hypnotic, big-room sound is audible on "Survival", where steely drums are fused with wild acid pirouettes. The title track is less intense, and sees the duo deliver a pulsating groove that's framed by steely percussion and ponderous vocal samples. "New Culture" is more stripped back, with this unlikely pairing focusing again on those steely drums, underpinned this time by an insistent filter. "Green Planet" is similarly focused, as rolling, Palstikman-style percussion and acid drones unravel over solid kicks.
