DPPLGNGRS change gear and label with this, their fourth 'Moneyshot' and their first release on Arcade Pony. Now that every chancer from Hardstyle cheese merchants to inspirationless 'House legends' have laid claim to EDM and laid bare its Heavy Metal level of subtlety, 'ecelectro' is the buzzword for 2014. And what better example of a new vision could you have than the subtle blend of garage, techno and electro that is 'Azure Protocol' and 'Billion Dollar Brain'?
Vril can usually be found releasing for Giegling, but despite finding a new home on Delsin, it's business as usual. 'Vortekz' is powered by splintered beats and buzzing percussion, while more impressively, 'Y7-10' boasts the severe unpredictability of a Surgeon track.
Haunting and techy with hard hitting, steppy, rolling beat. It's got Dispatch stamped all over it. Starting it's life as twinkling, somber intro with a solitary feel, a loud cargo train shuttles by dropping of some of it's glitchy, blobby load before the track bursts with an understated drop leaving us with the full effect of the raging head nodder. This track is fierce, frantic and frenzied without feeling to violent and threatening.
25 years on, Fini Tribe's metal dance/Balearic anthem comes around again, with support from new remixes by Optimo, Justin Robertson, A Finiflex Production and Robot84. Glaswegian production duo Optimo twist a steely, industrial version with clattering effects and fuzzing leads. Operating under his Deadstock 33s guise, Justin Robertson produces a Balearic house fix, while Finiflex and Robot84 temper the mood with their slo-mo mixes.
