The latest split release on Ressort starts in firing form, with Dutch DJ / producer Mitchel 'Stranger' Polderman delivering the hard, stomping funk and nocturnal stabs of "Granaatappel". There is a similar approach on Ekserd's "Heavy Stepping Threeway", where shiny synth riffs are underpinned by a surging, rhythm and kicks so submerged and steely they would sink a submarine. "Duality", by Gonzo MD, strips away any semblance of melody, leaving just a rough, grainy rhythm track, while Irish producer Myler's "Outside Late" is the most nuanced contribution, with spooky synth slivers unfolding over a skeletal groove. It's only a temporary digression though, and Trivmph's "Radius" ends the release with a wild acid meltdown.
