Review: Matthew Watt aka Killawatt drops his debut LP on the UK's Osiris Music. Gnarly, psychedelic techno is the name of the game here, and there's a whopping twelve tracks up for grabs. Blending everything from UK bass to dubstep and even drone, Killawatt's particular brand of four-to-the-floor is both singular and caters to just about anyone whose into menacing beats and abstract sonics. We're particularly into the choppy beats on "Spinal Swarm" and the outsider techno rhythm that is "Excessive Hyperbole". This album is absolutely brimming with quality and singularity. More from Mr.Watt, please!
Review: For its 50th release, UK-based Osiris Music has rightly thought of landing with a fully-packed compilation from all corners of its vast and explorative catalogue. As a side note, it's important to say that this imprint, along with a few other key stables, has been responsible for the successful merging of the techno and dubstep worlds over the last 5 years. Ipman's broken, techno-leaning tool "Persistent Dread" is a great example of this early on, with peeps like Pessimist or MAnnic also providing some new and exciting flavours in the field. The one like Killawatt is also on duty here, bringing through some delightfully eerie industrial vibes, while Paul Mac, Sleeper, and Juno favourite Manni Dee deliver amuch needed 4/4 swing to liven the dance up. Fully-packed and loaded.
