Playaz' little sister label is rapidly gaining support, and with releases like this it is clear to see why. This is a gloriously dark roller with a silky, luxurious vibe. The gorgeous female vocal works with a cannily-placed layer of soft pads to lift the bassline from its depths, and mirror its nasty undertone. It feels weighty, full-bodied and decadent, and when it drops no-one will be able to resist a good old-fashioned skank.
Wigged-out percussive psy-tech stylings from the Shropshire-based producer. Is that a sample from recent Johnny Depp movie misfire Transcendence? Remixes come from Alt-A and Isolate.
Forward-thinking music from Vision Fortune with tongue firmly in cheek. Sonically challenged awkwardness in the key of drone.
On the quiet, AD are sending some great stuff outta Cambridge (check out the superb 'Moose Funk Volume 1') — the key to why 'Speaker Attack' is so brilliant is Sumgli's production, a sparse, eerie mix of decaying synths and dubby slo-mo grime that's utterly undistorted, completely clear and yet somehow pumped full of just the right balance of low-end punchiness and trebly spookiness. Great verbals as you'd expect from Inja combine with Sumgli's soundpad to create a track that immediately hooks you, demands you check out more of AD's brilliant output. Don't sleep. The sun rises in the east.
