Glasgow's Rudi Zygadlo offers his take on the purple dubstep sound backed with remixes from Starkey and Slugabed on Planet Mu. Rudi's sound is essentially dubstep fusion, adding pop structures, eastern European classical music and contemporary US indie into a entirely plausible mesh that prioritises the song over all else. 'Resealable Friendship' starts the session with a shock of Gemmy/Zappa style squiggly synth riffage and punchy syndrums, while Starkey embellishes the dancefloor potential with crunked beats and Slugabed folds the riddim into concatenated angular strikes. 'The Udu And The Clave' closes with a rocking display of IDM extravagance.
David Keno gives Snatch records a kickstart with two well-built tech-house grooves. 'Upside Down' inverts a classic house track with overweight drums and elastic bass, before 'Wait For More' offers a plastic piece of tech-house phonk for the DJs. Fans of Made To Play or Claude Von Stroke, this is your craic.
