Move D's ongoing collaboration with Juju & Jordash yields more out-there grooves. Like previous MMH material, this release is the result of improvised jamming, and all of the tracks have a spontaneous, raw feeling. 'Avalanche' features the sound of the wind screeching through a forest over a primitive drum beat, while 'Don't Cry For Me Argentina (No Compromise Mix)' sees ghostly Moog lines run over a stripped-back rhythm. The most impressive track to come from the trio's live jams is 'Riptide', where spaced-out acid lines arc and ride over a trippy, modulated rhythm.
Big, synth-led number here from 19-year-old producer AWE who hails from LA and cites '80s movies, Hud Mo and Joker as influences. Yup, it’s all in there on 'Crystals' and therefore has a rather infectious nostalgia screaming out of it. And whilst it’s a bit too saccharine for my taste, it’s nothing compared to the Djemba Djemba 'Nightcore Remix', complete with weird chipmunk Japanese vocals and hyperactive drum & bass. Odd.
Northern lights from Manchester, nice mix of reggae and thunkingly heavy old-skool beats, rampagingly spot-on lyrics lending weight to what we've always known. We don't need to legalise it. In most of the country IT ALREADY IS MANDATORY.
Interesting noises on a Kraftwerkian groove with the result sounding a little like a dancified Spiritualised. Comes with a Dub that some more inventive DJs could put to good use.
