There is absolutely no questioning the production values on any tracks on this EP, but however good these pieces are, I cant help but feel a little bit bored of this techy, hard-hitting, fast-paced sound.
For an artist to make an impact within this ever-popular sub genre, they really need to do something very very different. Sure-fire hit, however, with a massive amount of heads still lapping it up.
The last year has seen Mutated Forms and their total aversion to sub genre conformities release on a diverse spectrum of labels spanning from CIA to Grid, and ticking off Hospital and Spearhead on the way.
Now the trio bring their talents to Pilot with this eclectic five-tracker. Tension has the uneasy feel that its name bestows, a shuddering beat with a grimey set of bars the main focus until an uncomfortably offset, mismatched jungle break emerges.
Ching from the floor and blasting you full throttle into galactic! this all-out onslaught on your ear drums lures with a spacey intro before dropping full pelt. Drenched in sci-fi sfx and including a good helping of laser ray synths, its ongoing crashing drums keep the energy at the highest level throughout.
Get your guns ready, those little pixelated aliens are about to descend to a dance near you
Guideline is one of those face-scrunching, spine-hunching undeniable system-crunching bangers that will undoubtedly be magnetically nestled into the sets of Andy C, Noisia and Spor for months and months to come.
Powerful distorted synths make up the main body of the track, and a paranoid underlay adds even more depth.
With Song of the Stars still blasting through speakers and his new EP firing on all cylinders it seems we will be hearing a lot more of Fade.
