Berlin operation Killekill continue where they left off with their impressive releases last year, with Genetically Modified Tracks the end product of pairing DJ Spider and Franklin De Costa together. Given the formidable nature of their individual production credentials, it's not surprising that the four tracks here left us craving more. Rhythmically, Spider and De Costa don't stray far from the 4/4 template but it's what occurs around it that's so memorable. It's no more apparent than on "Buzzsaw" where a sticky wooden block style rhythm is made all the more viscous by the thick bass line, muffled vocals and blurred jazz licks that cloak the channels. Elsewhere "The Unseen" is perhaps the most straight up dancefloor number, underpinned by a sense of impending gloom, which is a sensation shared with the post apocalyptic rumble of opening track "Slithis".
