“Upfront and super-aggressive, Botnek have gone all in on this. It’s hard to keep still while it is playing, I have been using it as a secret weapon in my sets for some time.”
This is a deadly little release from the Horizons camp. 'Thunder' gives the track a natural feel, which makes the ubiquitous, organic and ponderous bassline so much more intense. The tight percussion is adorned by drips and drops of delicate rain, adding to the natural vibe.
Very much a product of the dubstep diaspora as it continued to disseminate and experiment into broader electronica, Dafydd cracked onto the scene, post Joy Orbison 'Hyph Mngo' era, and was briefly causing much excitement. This, the first thing for well over a year, finds him making a decent-if-slightly-obvious housed up version of his chop-happy style.
"Great funky techno record. Energetic and organic-sounding."
