Boomkat Product Review:
If you've been following the recent DJing arc of Kode9 you'll have noticed a considerable stylistic shift towards a tougher polyrhythmic house stance, with the majority of contemporary dubstep eschewed in it's favour. Kode has been drawing for the duttier end of the house spectrum with tracks like Apple's 'Siegalizer', Roska's 'Feeline' or Geeneus' 'Yellowtail' featuring heavily, and signifying a swing away from half step torpor into succulently socafied house with batty bumping bass and a much reduced tempo. So it was only a matter of time before his productions followed suit, and this sickeningly good collaboration with Transition's LD is the first out of the cutting rooms. 'Bad' has also featured heavily in his sets of 2008, both on radio and in the club, where this track works so damn well. The first version runs at a garage and dubstep compatible 138bpm, but sounds like little else in that niche with the smartest concoction of insistent Maurizio stabs, rumping percussive polyrhythms and and pressurised subs since Martyn's 'Vancouver', but run rife with a distinctly British urban flavour that Kode 9 always manages to tap directly into. The big deal is all over '2 Bad' though, to our knowledge the first release from Kode 9 or LD running at 125bpm, which is a pretty massive shift considering that the rest of their combined catalogues averages out at a steady 138bpm. This one is obviously blended for Funky compatibility, with well swung house beats and a swelling bassline bump reconfigured with a more feminine flow, but still tough and dubbed enough to keep the blokes on the floor. Working at this tempo also allows the pair to really play around with the M-series style stabs, which morph into more acidic forms to lick the groove into a mad sweaty and sensually psyched club affair. In case you hadn't realised, we're massively into these cuts and we reckon a fair few of you will already be well on top of them, or just about to get your first fix, so clear yourself a bit of carpet space and cut some rug. Absolute head-f*ck incredible - ESSENTIAL PURCHASE!!!
