Boomkat Product Review:
Following months of fervent hype the freshly minted Numbers conglomerate bats a homerun with 'The Golden Handshake EP' from Lazer Sword aka Low Limit vs Lando Kal. If you were in any doubt as to where the party is happening, let these guys show you. Between them, they've notched up over 100,000 downloads of their mixtapes and trekked their future-blinged rave sound from San Francisco to Radio 1 via NY and back again, like some giant Katamari Damacy game, picking up huge fans from MAH to Sinden and Modeselektor. Their polyamorous style helplessly hops between stylistic beds, whether it's Rustie-styled wonky tempo pitches on 'Exotic Jesus', Daft Punk disco dicing on '3D Action Jackson' or bowel-worrying crunk subs on 'Trapper Keeper' and crowd hyping techno-hop riffage on 'Where You Been 7.5', this is some virile club sh*t on a mission to f*ck the rave. In 2010 they prove that boundaries are there to be bulldozed, flexing some powerful production muscle to reconstruct hiphop, house, techno and electro with a proper American discoid bounce. The full colour artwork is fittingly fancy and should be occupying a space in your collection as soon as possible. Watch this space for some heavyweight dance music from Numbers!
