Asteroid Records' owner keeps inviting more established artists to bring more variety to his warehouse-aimed records. This time the choice fell on RE_P & Hakko, who worked in collaboration and provided two original works. To top it off, their first track is backed by craftily-built remixes from Dykore, Opal and ArchivOne.
Mutual Brutality 01: supremely potent, syncopated kicks attack the subwoofers straight from second one, soon joined by a mind-blowing bassline, shaped from electric guitar; the composition comprises elements from various genres while being a high-energy work. With Mutual Brutality 02, acid-infused kicks are arranged at common time and are more grounded, whilst the two basslines are presented as melancholic elements. Dykore's rework, wherein robustly thudding kicks that by times break their signature, densely sweeping hats, rough claps and bursts of poignantly-striking bars, will run against a majestic, overwhelming bassline. Opal will unleash some satisfyingly whanging kicks with short sweeping samples attached to them, paper-thick bars that travel to and fro across the channels, generic opens hats and acidic bassline that runs and pans at a rapid pace. ArchivOne makes use of positively devastating, mind-numbing kicks that run their game under two layers of open hats, sandy hats, high-passed polyphonic streams of acid, and effective three-note bassline; unleashed on the dancefloor, it will shred the crowd to bits.
