Six Degrees - Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD - Lex

You know that feel when you're walking down a dark alley? Don't turn around. Don't turn around cos you'll panic yourself, and then you'll start running, and then you'll be beyond scared and into pure terror. Spectral, creepy, eerie, that ol' Eric B 'Mahogany' beat used to spookily suggestive effect, Ghost and Danny Brown swapping some truly mindbending rhymes, the whole track holding itself within itself, breathing and sweating like a real living thing, a presence in your day you can't shake from the memory. One of the most M.R.Jamesian hip-hop tracks I've ever heard. Superb.

Too Many Answers - Miss K8 - Masters of Hardcore

The flip-side to this year's Dominator festival anthem, Miss K8 keeps things dark and sinister on this track. With cinematic vocals to add to the atmosphere, this track barely pauses for breath before repeatedly unleashing hell on your eardrums. This track certainly isn’t for the faint of heart, but for those who like their music with some extra bite, Miss K8 certainly hasn’t failed to deliver.

Origins - Pryda - Pryda Recordings

After a solid run of vocal hits with borderline radio appeal, Eric Prydz returns to his pure dancefloor persona here, with an EP of four tracks packing that familiar Pryda punch. What else needs to be said? The brooding, sinister ‘Origins’ is the best of the lot, its looped vocal used to particularly hypnotic effect. There’s no concessions made, and it’s all the more exciting for it.

Afrobeat Makers Vol. 2 - Various - Comet Records

Four producers from around the world (Paris, Sao Paulo and Amsterdam) fragment and rebuild Tony Allen’s classic Afrobeat drum patterns for their own devices. A gloriously unique idea, yes, but a lot of this feels a wee bit insipid.
