You could be forgiven for thinking you're part of a messed-up dream when listening to Annix's new track. Haunting and harrowing breaks with a jump-up vibe that will keep the dirtiest of floors sinking low.
The jewel in the crown comes from the sparsely used vocal sample.
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
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.
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.
