A newcomer to the Modeselektor-curated 50WEAPONS stable, Bambounou brings a welcome ghetto-centric attitude to the expected bass ‘n beats, and somehow avoids easy categorization. Sure there are chopped footwork-like vocal snips on standout ‘Mass’, but the beat itself has more common with the grinding ghetto-tech of DJ Godfather or DJ Assault. This nod to Detroit continues on the EP’s extended highlight ‘Deepstaria’ which takes an almost Drexciyan turn with piercing analogue synths and 808s intact. Heavy tunes that tickle the club as much as the mind.
