8/10 Brian Staff review, 06 September 2012
This record just begged to be reviewed with that sleeve! Look at that kid, he is so cute! I’m assuming that’s our MC Chunky as a child, he’s a popular personality from Loefah’s Swamp 81 show on Rinse FM and this is his debut double pack and it’s a total belter. ‘Decca’ rides along on a thudding techno kick over which all sorts of phased minimal madness is layered, a hard propulsive and airy tune with total drive and finesse, real spacious and powerful shit. ‘Experiment 727’ takes a more progressive attitude with seriously deep euphoric swaying bass strides, chattering rhythmic ADD beats and, again, that cavernous use of space and atmosphere typical of countless productions on this excellent label.Continuing with this speaker destroying zeal comes ‘Thang’ which possesses a kwaito-esque strut, a sultry female vocal loop and a boss low-slung groove with lots of nicely restrained effects and understated samples. ‘Rugged’ finishes the set off with the most blatant example of the classic Swamp 81 sound, kind of recalls Boddika or some of the old Fuel records breakbeat - a class snaky electroid rig-buster with an enormous sound and tons of subtle detail...a cracking EP from lil’ Chunky.
