Boomkat Product Review:
Legendary UK rave project N.A.D. returns to the fray with four trax of calculated electro pressure
Firm favourites around here (and everywhere else) for their ‘Distant Drums’ classic of 1990, Mustafa Ali & Tony Thorpe’s (aye, the KLF producer) duo test their electro mettle in four different ways for their patrons at Rush Hour. ‘Cometh the Butlerian Jihad’ gives it some proper, trunk rattling Kraftwerk-via-Miami bass pneumatics, whereas ‘Machine in the Ghost’ gets wild and freaky with the decimated step sequencing on a sort of hyper halfstep footwork tip, replete with vocoders in an LA style that also informs the Egyptian Lover-styled flex of ‘Utopia Dystopia’, and our percy, ‘Pax’ drops the tempo to work up piquant trills and arcing arps primed for next weekend.
