9/10 Ant Staff review, 23 June 2011
Repress edition on Eaux
Sandwell District enters "Phaze 3" with this super hot 12" from this mystery producer whose tracks here fit the label's aesthetic like a vacuum sealed glove. 'Secretion' kicks things off with a slamming mid-paced kick and some very industrial sounding percussion while this bubbling synth ripples away alongside a massive eerie drone. The overall vibe is dystopian yet ecstatic maintaining a huge sense of dancefloor appeal whilst being really quite dark.
The clarity of the production has all the high standards we've come to expect from this cult label. This is gonna sound totally insane over a massive soundsystem as the lead synth becomes slightly acidic. This one's really going to appeal to fans of Planetary Assault Systems' 'Temporary Suspension' album, certainly the filtering bears resemblance to Luke Slater's style. Meanwhile 'Bare Hand' takes no prisoners and stomps and pounds along with total precision, with a acid line that gets manipulated into more squelchy low end and higher pitched tones, reminding me of the ultra under-rated Ron Maney AKA DJ Skull as well as having shades of Regis' monotone style. Everything is placed perfectly in the mix for maximum big room crowd pleasure.
Wicked stuff as always from Sandwell District that has me eagerly awaiting what will come next.
Get alerted to new stock from this artist / label.
