Boomkat product review for:

dizzee rascal / wen - Strings Hoe (Wen Refix) / Signal

*Second Pressing with green ink stamp* Keysound set the levels for 2014 with Wen's rude refix of Dizzee Rascal's '04 rarity, 'Strings Hoe'. His follow-up to the wicked 'Commotion' EP of 2013 is a perfect example of the 130bpm sound he and Keysound have been cultivating for the last 18 months or so; pitching the original's pizzicato hook and Dizzee's yelp to a much darker, slunking electro swagger compatible with Funky, Techno, Garage and house, it's a sound that's probably not been so open and ripe for mixing since the early '90s when garage, house, hardcore and techno were practically tessellating terms at the same tempo. Deeper into the bashment, B-side 'Signal' brings an equally canny reduction of soca snare patter and shoulder-barging subs inna bleepin', minimalist framework that's techno in all but name. Massive recommendation.
