Looking For Trouble

   
More Than I Ever Thought I Could - (5:08) 133 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter - (4:27) 128 BPM
Review: Mall Grab man Jordon Alexander has never before released music under his given name, but has made an exception for these two tracks since they were inspired by "turbulent times" and about "self-discovery, who I am and who I want to be". Both cuts are amongst the Australian's most impressive productions to date, with a level of melodic detail greater than many of his previous excursions. We're particularly enjoying the fizzing electro brilliance of "More Than I Ever Though I Could", where foreboding bass riffs and sparkling lead lines bob and weave above a snappy drum machine beat. That said, there's something wonderfully evocative about "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter", a tribute to the book and film of the same name that's in turns rich, warm, blissful, poignant and almost entirely beat-less.

Get Impetuous - (5:31) 128 BPM
Review: Not content with co-founding the Steel City Dance Discs imprint, Mall Grab has decided to launch another label: Looking For Trouble. Naturally, the label's debut release comes from the man himself, who serves up another quartet of killer cuts. He first pushes his crunchy house percussion up to techno tempo and reaches for glassy synthesizer melodies on fine opener "Liverpool Street in the Rain", before peppering a warm and woozy deep house groove with punchy hip-hop vocal samples on "Bust". Those hankering after some up-tempo filthiness should check the doom-laden rave stabs and full-throttle ghetto-house rhythms of "Looking For Trouble" - one of the producer's dirtiest and most thrill-packed cuts to date - while "Get Impetuous" is a bustling chunk of late night hip-house revivalism.

Temperature Rising - (4:47) 135 BPM
Review: The fourth release on Jordan Alexander ask Mall Grab's label starts in an ominous mood. "Sleepless" resounds to a cacophony of layered, moody synths that swirl over a thumping techno track, while on "Eucalyptus", he uses slinky, steely electro drums to articulate a similarly dark mood. The title track is also electro-themed, but on this occasion, Alexander opts for a more visceral approach, with a frazzled, searing low end and kettle drums to the fore. Rounding off the release is the aptly named "Temperature Rising", where an amalgamation of driving techno drums and grimy bass underpin epic rave stabs that soar majestically.

Review: Australian baller Mall Grab here with an EP of sorts that touches on rave, dubstep and hardcore atmospheres tapped into broken techno rhythms and electro drums. Trance and goa vibes make their way into "Hidden Worlds" for something equally fitting for the mega techno club as it is the bush doof - Australian slang for a rave in the woods. Something of importance to the producer at the moment who raised money for Australia's state fire services with Looking For Trouble's quick release of Don't Keep The Fires Burning. This record however sees Mall Grab return to the underground with head-nodding references to bleep electro in "Leaving Tokyo" to the gnarly gabba and Kill Bill sirens of "Switchblade". Deeper sounds of a subterranean Sunflower.

Got Me Fucked Up (Mall Grab remix) - (5:25) 135 BPM
Review: Strangers is the first collaboration between Mall Grab and Skin On Skin, and it sees them deliver a fine, distinctive dance floor release. On the title track, searing bass is combined with driving percussion and melancholic piano lines for a pensive but effective techno track. In contrast, Mall Grab's solo effort, "?" is a pummelling hard techno banger, replete with spooky Halloween samples and a slightly daft ragga vocal sample. Skin On Skin's remix features rolling break beats and tripped out blips, while his own charmingly titled "Got Me Fucked Up" is a slinky electro workout replete with ghetto samples. Mall Grab repays the favour by turning "Fucked Up" into a grainy banger, powered by hollowed out drums.

Review: The third release on Looking For Trouble sees label owner Jordon Alexander aka Mall Grab team up with his long-time friend Alysha Fleiter aka Nite Fleit for a killer club EP. Fleiter opens proceedings with the heads-down pulses of "Hot Bot", while Mall Grab's "Reconnaissance" is a high-paced, ghetto-tinged banger that clocks in at close to 140bpm. However, the most impressive results happen when the two producers pair up; "Anatomy of the Senses" is a wild ride through snare roll-led, banging acid techno, and the title track sees them deliver a devastating-ly sharp electro workout.
