Review: You can always rely on Krakota to come up with the goods, and true to form "Xylo" is a perfect mashup of his own fresh and forthright style and the old days we all love. Subby and surly, it's moody enough to bring some serious stepping to the floor but packing enough punch to hit headline slots. "Irregular" takes over the flip side with the tang of brutal synths in tow as rolling bass rumbles under skitterish snares. Nasty in all the best ways, there's a good chance you've already had your head down to this over the summer fest period. Now's your chance to put a name to the beat and introduce your neighbours to it too. Thanks, Krakota!

Review: The moment the quintessential rave synths, rolling breaks and cooing female vocals on album opener "North Winds" hit you, you know Krakota's put together something special. Coming on strong like a young Logistics but with his own soul-flecked signature, Krakota has weight, a strong sense of history and scope. The footwork beats and New York sounding synths on "Turn Of Fate", the big band flourishes of "Powder Coated", the writhing jazz snakery of "Elastic" the horror movie spikes and MC venom of "Weirdos & Creepers". Pick a track, any track, and we guarantee Krakota's smashed it. Hospital don't mess around with artist albums... Here's a perfect reminder why.
