Throw back and get busy: this week’s UKF rewind comes courtesy of two bass titans: Datsik & Kill The Noise – Lightspeed
A serious curveball when OWSLA dropped it three and a half years ago; at that point neither party had expressed that much interest in the 4/4 electro-edged peripheries of bass music. Back to the future, Datsik’s spitting out house-flavoured Eph-bombs on the regs and Kill The Noise’s forthcoming album Occult Classic is loaded with multi-genre activities such as FUK UR MGMT.
In hindsight Datsik & Kill The Noise – Lightspeed was a pretty sharp glance into the future.
PLUS: it still sounds sick! Those timeless chords, that surging sense of uplift and drive and those mischievous bass grizzles on the fills will always kill it.
Amped for Occult Classic to drop next week. In the meantime, enjoy…
