Local boy Opine Ko$insky is back on Acre with a new EP of heavy as fuck left field 'hop-core. After 2013's ragga-gabba hip-hop mash up Ko$insky further develops his intense yet catchy sound with three tracks of superb off-the-wall and noisy hip-hop. 'King Barrie melds wide-boy beats, distorted raps, jungle bass lines, a smattering of amens, children playing and a touch of Buckfast. Nice.
Raw Village Hall (aka Savier/one half of techno duo Savagen) turns in three startlingly good remixes, channelling the low end sludge of the originals into proper headnodding & bowel shaking Scorn-esque heaviness. Roll up and kick back.
Fresh from the success of his Ad Noiseam album 'Rust', Swarm Intelligence reworks 'You Slippery Fuck' into something altogether darker, harder and primed for the dance floor. Spotlighting the excoriating bass line, this slab of concrete is set to bludgeon unsuspecting ravers into submission.
