Joseph Vitterito’s Anticodon Records heads into 2015 with some new material from Stateside newcomer, BimBamBoom. ‘Kiss the Disco’ fits in alongside that chugging acid/disco sound that has been occupying some of the darker corners of clubland recently (notably the productions of Craig Bratley, Daniel Avery and the rhythms you’d hear at Weatherall’s A Love From Outer Space parties), and features suitable remixes from OOFT!, Magic Touch and Secret Self Rubber.
A dark sinister vocal from 4 Hero’s rave classic is reworked with a dubby kick and bass, and pounding groove. The real underground!
Cannibal Ox have been elliptically travelling the solar system a while now, but their 14-year orbit is nearing its next pass of earth — 'Iron Rose' is the first probe they're dropping before the release of their newest opus 'Blade of the Ronin' and it's... nuts. As you'd expect. Antarctic-cold, as jagged and rugged as a meteor-belt, Doom side-eyeing Vast Aire and Vordul Mega to the point where you can't tell if he's a willing participant or a terrified hostage. No-one else sounded anything like them. No one else sounds anything like them now either. Superb and a cold fuzzy to all psychonauts who remember. They're back.
With hardstyle conquering new territories, it's great to see local talent coming through. This new euphoric hardstyle release from Chilean hardstyle act Noiseshock showcases the harder sounds sweeping South America at the moment.
