Having failed somewhat to cross over to the dubstep arena with the shocking Joker album, former neo-goths 4AD now enter the nether worlds of underground darkwave hip hop with this compilation of material from this Atlanta based prodigy.
Musically it fits in strangely perfectly with the 4AD back catalogue full of eerie slo-mo beats and dark churning loops. Opener ‘Mystical Maze’ is a slow jam with a strange whistling sample that sounds like it comes from a Disco Inferno record. The second track ‘Suck a Dick 2012’ feeds on a creepy dysfunctional sample whilst ‘Grind on Me’ is a standout - repetitive slow grooves, Tricky-style whispered paranoid vocal delivery and what almost amounts to a pop chorus. Some of the instrumental interludes feature strange clanking sounds that wouldn’t be out of place on a Demdike Stare record but generally this is an East coast rival to the Odd Future collective.
