The label you can trust to meet your filthy needs, Chase Yer Tail once again come up trumps with a great four-tracker. It kicks off with Like Water from label dons Mobile Dogwash and DJ No Comment, who’s otherwise known as Aaron Higgins, from Dublin party fiends Transformer sounds. It has a bowel-shaking bass, looped 90s techno chords and – of course, this being Dogwash – one of their patented scruffy acid lines. The eponymous quote from Bruce Lee introduces a manic third section from which you emerge, bloody and bruised.
OB1’s sound is cleaner, more separate – and funky as all hell. Indecent Exposure has a repeating siren throughout, but it’s in the acid lines where this is really happening. There are three or four of them blasting away. They build up to a breakdown where if you can imagine the acid lines like monstrous snakes and OB1 like a riot cop beating them back with a baton until ultimately he is overrun, then you’ve got the picture. By the end of the track they’ve taken over completely, rising in pitch and intensity until your veins explode, bloodying the pristine driven snow . I’m telling you, from the breakdown to the outro this is pure acid heaven. Round of applause for OB1.
So – what a great idea to have Indecent Exposure remixed by Twisted Tyrants (which the last time I looked was Mobile Dogwash and Dave Atomizer). As expected they bring the sleaze. Meanwhile, to take us home, is Jared Blyth, who usually appears as Nesbit. Reptiles comes with samples from Fear and Loathing and a suitably headbanging acid line, though as so often with Jared’s tracks it’s in the atmospherics where the real treasures lie. I especially like the looped horn, giving the track a 90s SUF feel. Bonzer!
