Boomkat Product Review:
Classic Mad Mike productions for UR, working incognito as The Hostile. The 'Ambush 12" originally came out back in 1997, exemplifying the hi-tek funk sound with funked-up drum machines and proper jazz techno motifs from Mr Banks. 'Saigon' sees him experiment with far-eastern melodic modes and 'Fear Our Presence' completes the serious Detroit tribalist vibe with layers of killer percussion syncopated with swirls of lush trippin' tropical keys. Nobody before or since has sounded quite like this.
