- Fuller / Hurricane Riddim by Funkystepz
Looks like another garage-y/house hybrid roller from the Hyperdub boys. 'Fuller' is a right solid tune, one of those itchy euphoric groovers that has one foot in the murky post-grime minefield, another in more celebratory floor-slaying pastures. It screams pirate radio smash to be honest. Classic house maneuvers such as an intermittent Italo-style piano line dally with a strong essence of classic Chicago house, but the air punching, hard-stepping rhythm & "wonky" cartoon rave stabs place the tune firmly into the contemporary realm. Everything about this number is thoroughly enjoyable, basically because nothing is overplayed, every element is brought in & phased out so succinctly, the flow of the tune becomes quite compulsive. One of those where you're kinda sad when it's over. They do like throwing their name into the mix occasionally, just to remind you who is producing these restless, lithe rhythms for your delectation. The flip has a cool techno kick & a relentless chiming aquatic synth stabs which put me in mind of a slightly less abstract Hieroglyphic Being. Both tunes are propulsive floor fillers, seemingly managing to be both sparse & muscular, powerful templates for maximal devastation at the party in your mind....
