Boomkat Product Review:
French election politics and rave music prompt this ace compilation of winners from Low Jack, J-Zbel, and U-202 (Ron Morelli), dispatched to celebrate 3 years of hook ups between L.I.E.S. and Brothers From Different Mothers.
BFDM’s J-Zbel turns up two ‘ardcore-infected zingers on the front with a wide-eyed zinger named Nik Molina full of trancing arpeggios and strobing choral voices, then on a killer ’91 breakbeat tip with the savant brutishness of Selecta (Neneu Anthem #5).
Sharing the flipside, Low Jack plates up the spooky dancehall dub of Ice Formula Riddim somewhere between the eyes of Equiknoxx and Jay Glass Dubs, and Ron Morelli beats off the gristly, dogged noise torque of Whistler (Edit X), which sounds like one of Cylob’s Lobster Trax gone feral.
