Boomkat Product Review:
ASC seeks the spice melange of late ‘90s D&B in a keenly anticipated barrage of breaks and personalised sci-fi sound design tekkers indebted to Goldie, Photek, Digital, Source Direct, Krust, Dom & Roland et al
25 years after this sound’s golden era, ASC’s hi-tek spit and polish job on D&B tropes results in a morphed new chassis that resembles the classic sound, but genetically altered with shapeshifting synth skin and restlessly recalibrated drum programming likely to please even the most pedantic listeners.
We advise running to the nano-tight breakbeat DNA splicing of ’Sub Zero’ for the deadly conga torque, and the bruxist kung fu of ‘Hostile Intent’ and the needlepoint meta meat-motor control of ‘Thorn Without a Rose’ or ‘Anomaly’ if you fancy going like Bruce Lee on a warehouse workout.
Sheer class, this. For the dancers.
