mad smooth - Brutal Beats

**Strictly limited edition of 100 hand-stamped copies** After knocking out the sun-dazed 'Dreams Of San Antonio' LP and his 'Anagram Jam' collaboration with Finders Keepers' Andy Votel, Dom Thomas cuts up and reactivates ten tracks of "psych'd up global cosmic-rock and folk slop." If you familiar with the Brutal Music mode, there's easily enough fuzz and breaks to put a ruddy big grin on your gob, but if not, you should expect the choicest samples juiced from vintage wax finds and reconstituted with added FX flavour. The dubbed-out vocals on the raw Latino funk of the 2nd cut are outrageously good fun; as is the slow, Turkish-sounding ace; and that wailing, synth-blurting hairy-back rocker on the B-side. We haven't a clue what any of the source material is but it's reliably ace, we tell ya.
