Review: For their second EP for Little Rascal records, Australian heroes Jilted Hoodz present a trip into what they describe as "future jungle". In the case of "Atomic Spectre (Future Jungle)", that means classic '90s tech-step beats pitched down to breakbeat tempo, with creepy pianos, sludgy bass, classic choral samples and thrusting dread bass liberally peppered atop. It's a curious concoction, but strangely attractive. Flip for "Atomic Spectre (Dub)", a delay-heavy trip into late night dubstep territory with paranoid effects, discordant vocal samples and intense computer vocals aplenty. It's a little less hectic than the (admittedly blazed) A-side, but no less pungent.
