Last few copies of this under-the-radar garage bomb from quartermaster Daphni.
Manix back with the same twenty-year-old hard-core shit on Reinforced like he’d just popped out for Rizla. Marc Mac at the controls. Thrilling stuff. Five ribbits.
Murderous MMM disco-house — sharp and succinct, witty and hedonistic — fore-grounding the soulfulness of the Tshetsha’s singing. The OA is a cavernous, atmospheric, stately steppers.
Swelling out of thin air like a monstrous child of Krautrock — immense, propulsive, minimal — with a Mala remix which ratchets up the open-air drama and dread.
Such a great year for the label, captured here — perfect party-tape business.
Rough dubstep from the Hard Wax milieu — rudeboy, heavy, old-school, DMZ business. Third release by the label: all of them are here, and warmly recommended.
The two dubstep pioneers at the top of their game. Truly an album, the music is multi-levelled — dark as anything at times, but engrossingly varied and emotionally shaded, always on the move.
Extra to the LP, with a magnificent, epic, head-scrambling remix, more spaced and spooked than the original. Shackleton’s dream liturgy fully unfolds — an eerie, garbled sublimity, a kind of black-magic plainsong.
