Boomkat Product Review:
Massive manoeuvres from the Wireblock camp, finally dropping the second release proper from rudeboy Rustie. It's not as if he's been slack over the last 12 months, hitting us up with a Joker split disc and a blindingly good one-sider, but we've all been aching for a full 12" of pure Rustie-ness so 'Bad Science' couldn't come any sooner. If we factor in a ridiculously good Henirich Mueller remix on the flip, this 12" has pure devastation written all over its cheeky mug. 'Tar' kicks the EP off with some hi-scoring aquakrunk madness, carving up bum crunched hiphop beats under overheated arcade game melodies, before the long awaited title track drops on the rave richter scale with a resounding 8.7 (enough to sink a small Scottish island if he had subs big enough). This one has been righteously played to death by everyone from Kode 9 to Mark Pritchard due to its addictive drops and outright anthem status so expect to hear it a lot more now that us mere pedestrians can own a copy. We can imagine the Wireblock crew must be beaming with the results of Heinrich Mueller's electro-physics experiments for 'Zig-Zag' on the flip, remixing the track into a sinister metallic night-time creature not to be dropped before midnight. 'Zig-Zag' reprise finishes up a mindblowing EP with a final burnout of any impurities from the original, blazing up on entry with exothermal synthlines and an impact velocity leaving everyone else for dust. Jaw droppingly smart. Immense.
