The duo known as Kaiju unveil their debut LP with a sinful 7 tracker on Deep Medi.
The 7 deadly sins form a sort of conceptual basis upon which each of these riddims is built; opener Envy sees Jack Gates colour the soundscape green as the percussion and miasma of sub-frequencies signals classic Kaiju.
Sloth does what is says on the tin – a lazy, heavily syncopated groove accompanies a single-note sub-pulse – Kaiju nail it here, with lightyears of space combined with intense sub-pressure. An oppressive, tense listen.
Gantz collab Gluttony is a stop-start system tester with a bassline reminiscent of the now-classic Spry Sinister. Listen close to the richness of detail in that rhythm section – layer upon layer of tasty rhythmic icing….
Junglist frenzy Wrath is an excursion in the off-beat, hard-as-nails, snares from a classic break, heads down, gunfingers out, no messing about.
A superb, dancefloor-oriented effort – test it out yourself.
