Boomkat Product Review:
The latest bomb from Kompakt comes with an intriguing story. Rex The Dog is rumoured to be a very well known producer from London who has to remain nameless for now, but who churns out 2 of the finest tracks Kompakt have delivered for quite some time. "Prototype" is a superbly cut club track with all the classic skills utilised, the beats are crisp and huge, the synths are classic and perfectly placed, with a computer game vibe emanating from the music and the beats building up the anticipation of the breaks in that classic techno way. Massive. Flip over for 'We live in Daddy's Car' which is almost experimental in its use of different kick sounds and cut up synths, with spannered and staggered vocals sliced over the raving bass synth and the jacking beat that almost goes Giorgio Moroder with the synth line. Its an out and out classic , and when the trance like arpeggio's arrive you'll have your hands up in the air with the rest of them. Large.
