Boomkat Product Review:
Electrifying album of 808 party music from Addison Groove, on Modeselektor's 50 Weapons imprint. Though we stand by his Hesdhunter material, it's fair to say that Tony Williams has found his calling as Addison Groove, drawing on juke, electro, dubstep, ghetto-house and jeep-rocking hip-hop variants to create super-heavy bass music that leaves you with no alternative but to dance and/or bite your lower lip raw. You can imagine the cast of Jersey Shore throwing shapes to the potty-mouthed, Spank Rock-featuring 'Bad Things' and 'Beeps', while 'Rudeboy' and 'Night To Remember' invest footwork with some UK-Caribbean flavour, 'Sooperlooper' updates fidget in gloriously tasteless fashion, while 'Ass Jazz' is the kind of technicolour, precision-engineered Funky deconstruction you could imagine Erik & Fiedel fashioning in their Berlin studio. The second half of the album explores tripper textures in amidst the bludgeoning sub wumps and tom hits, but mostly this is a record that asks you to do one thing, and one thing only: shake that aaaaasssss.
