This EP isn't for the faint-hearted: Baly starts the latest release on Sub Cult with the pounding "Bruja", where murderous kicks and a dank, all-consuming bass are reminiscent of classic Joey Beltram. No surprise then that it conjures up images of sweat dripping from the walls at a warehouse rave. The pace eases and the intensity level drops somewhat on "This Planet", where Baly uses tribal drums and a mesmerising trance riff to capture the listener's imagination. "Rule My World" is different again: this time the mood is more foreboding thanks to menacing synth stabs, but beneath this dark exterior, Baly keeps the rhythm funky thanks to the use of a linear rhythm and relentless percussion.
Elton D has released on a range of labels over the past decade, and now brings his colourful sound to Sub Cult. On "Moves", the Brazilian producer revisits the party techno sound of the early 00s; deploying a rolling, bass-driven groove, he uses disco stabs, vocal snippets and horn riffs to ensure that it will appeal to a wide range of DJs. "Duque" has a more contemporary flavour, and sees Elton mine minimal influences. While the groove remains at a tempo that guarantees it broad appeal, the dayglo trance riffs, stuttering vocal samples and rolling snares also ensure that it's an essential release for those who like tripped out techno.
