Boomkat Product Review:
Hyperdub give a nod of respect to one of the UKs most influential underground producers with two firin' tracks from Terror Danjah and DOK. If you've been paying attention to the sets of Scratcha, Butterz or Kode 9 in the last few months you've no doubt clocked the searing heat of 'Acid'. It's got to be one Danjah's hardest cuts to date, giving a firm nod to '92 'ardkore with Belgian mentasms and stupendous stop/start rhythmic force that makes a clear case for the 'nuum genetics of Steve Gurley and co being carried through to Grime's lurching rhythmic swagger. When the sprightly Berlin/Detroit chords kick in for a brief 4/4 session, you know this guy is at the top of his game, dispensing dancefloor memes like some rudeboy rave renaissance man. Together with DOK on the flipside the pair concoct a peculiarly UK brand of tropical swing, using juicily saturated technicolor synths and that indefinably rude sense of timing to craft a riddim that should surely hold up as one of the labels finest in 2010. Scandalously large-and-in-charge tunes. Essential!
