Boomkat Product Review:
One of UKF, broken beat and bass music’s OG producers Altered Natives returns to the fray with a 20 track payload of dank, heavy and experimental-edged rufige on his Eye4Eye Recordings.
Making no concessions to trend, the London-bassed artist sticks to his guns with great results working deep into the darker fissures of house, techno and bass styles found scattered across the set.
If we’re playing favourites, it’s hard to ignore the likes of his super moody, even radgy rasa-out Get Real, or the off-kilter trust of Acid Black, which sounds something like we’d imagine Terrence Dixon to, if he came from London not Detroit. For proper, sub-heavy ghetto bangs, check out the pressure on Gravity, whilst darkside nuttahs need to cop the PCP-strength knock of Lucifer, and The Terror sees him ball forward with searing synthlines on a mad bruk beat, while he saves his crookedest dancefloor tests for the brutish acid of Weißer Junge Schwarzer Musikclub and the bucking acid burial Kung Fu Trans Anaconda.
