Review: Bristol bestie badmen Batu and Lurka clash up once again for another Fringe excursion. One track, one remix, "Curved" gets straight to the point with its loosely broken house beats, grumbling bass bubbles and drunken synth scribbles. If you recall the dubby delights of Craig Richards & Lee Burridge's Tyrant project years ago, you're in the right area. Need things a little spicier? Flip for Bambounou's up-tempo twist where the drums are fully broken, the tension is higher and there's a trippy-assed breakdown that will bend your dancefloor's minds. Limited to 300, this won't hang around.
Review: High grade club business from the lurking one right here. After a series of treats on his own Fringe White imprint, Lurka jumps aboard the good ship Timedance, run by his long-time musical ally Batu, for his first proper solo EP. As you'd expect, the results are joyously chaotic and unpredictable. "Point Noise Behaviours" is a stampy warped rave monster who has done 10 rounds with Tyson Fury but still just about manages to stand up and throw gunfinger. "Ssppeedd" takes more of a techno twist as it rambles at pace towards a very trippy breakdown before the hypnotic tripletty twists of "Minds Eye Tript" calm us into a more lucid state. Finally "Rhythm Hi-Tek" seals the deal. A fractured, tense slab of electro so electric it sizzles with pent up energy, Lurka didn't name the EP after it for nothing.
