Neat little roller with its main draw distinctly in the low-end. The drums are fresh and zesty-sounding, acting as a foil to the warm and enveloping bass; like an enchanting siren it lulls you into its dark midst.
Supremely classy breakbeat from the London-based producer, who takes Rich & Deller's soulful vocal-led Balearic house original and twists it up with an electro-style bassline and extra syncopated goodness.
Sometimes I wonder how these guys can sleep at night — after producing such brutal, sinister rawstyle they must have worst nightmares than eating a block of cheese before bed. Nevertheless if you're into the raw sounds it doesn't get much bigger than this, with the epic film score-influenced breakdown building into a simple, twisted melody, dropping with seriously raw power.
No guff Chet, I’ve been waiting for Ekoplekz to do something like this for what seems like a long, long time. Not that he hasn’t made music that would function on and pretty much batter any lesser soundsystem in the past, it just feels like these six tracks completely revel in their newfound directness. Basically, take that busted plekzed sound palette, apply it to slow chug techno and you’ve got ‘Sarkaztik’, aka my realised dream.
