With releases on Injector, Corrosive, Acid Test… actually, just about every Acid label you care to name, as well as curating their own Chase Yer Tail label, Mobile Dogwash have been nothing if not prolific of late. Neither have they been spreading themselves thin. In fact, they remain on imperial form, releasing banger after banger, all of them with that distinctive Dogwash aesthetic.

Which is? Riff monsters. Sleazy riff monsters at that. Funky, sleazy riff monsters packed with boomy, sustain-heavy drums, squealing, melodic, phat ass acid lines, and all with the forward propulsion of a flaming car pushed off a cliff. Whether you’re playing out, you’re a bedroom warrior, or a techno-charged gym monkey, you drop a Dogwash track in a set and it is going off.

It’s all there on EP hightlight Fully Charged, which comes courtesy of the Dogwash & Dave Atomizer under their Twisted Tyrant moniker and broadly speaking sounds like how the soundtrack to Death Race 2000 should sound – if the job was given to a bunch of nutters from Sheffield.

Meanwhile, Head Noddin’ Shit by Acid Kazuals (Dogwash and Si McLean) has an old skool ‘wreck the discotheque’ sample, which lends the track a funky counterpoint to the sheet-metal percussion going on elsewhere – an approach explored on the last occasion Dogwash teamed up with Si McLean, funnily  enough, on Booty Assid. You like that tune, you’ll like this.

Next up, Laws of Nature by Orgy of Distortion (the Dogwash and Pablo Sonic Terrorist) has higher-pitched, more insistent acid and a declamatory female vocal sample that works a treat, while So Fuck All You boasts a low-slung, growly acid line, menacing drums and a frankly threatening vocal sample. (‘Threatening’ in the context of this blog meaning ace, of course). In short, a great EP from a bunch of producers that simply couldn’t be boring if they tried.
