FatKidOnFire looks westward for its 12th EP outing. Marking a whole year of forward-thinking, dynamic bass releases, US artist Malleus gives us a schooling in originality, as "Vodun" is coated in the harrowing sounds of what appears to be a rusty swing, shifting lonely in a damp cold wind. "Wall To Wall" seems equally alien, with deep space groans and weeps reverberating over a beautifully rounded bassline and roomy drums. "The Message" takes us down a much darker route as the vocals and strings are mangled and warped with a real twisted cheekiness. Finally "Body Heat" closes the show on a bigger, aggy dramatic flex; all ominous bass tones, an alarming staccato middy bass riff and treacle-thick subs, it's a great way to end a truly unique EP. Watch out for Malleus, an FKOF stamp of approval is just the beginning.
