Whooah — South London production duo Ill Move Sporadic are all set to release their debut LP, 'Drug Corpse' and this is the first thing I've heard from it. Fantastic spacey Arabic drone funk, guitars and bass unfolding and augmenting themselves in Led Zep-like 'Kashmir'-isms. Superbly startling muezzin-like tannoy hollering leads us through to the final fade. Absolutely fucking excellent and 'Drug Corpse' should be on your Xmas list NOW.
Having a B-side that is a reversed version of an album track is something The Stone Roses used to favour and Beady Eye recently followed suit with a backwards version of 'BE' album track 'Start Anew'. Tour DJ Arveene is most likely responsible for this new version, part of a longer set of remixes from the album '42:42', and the result sounds something like Andrew Weatherall overhauling 'Hallelujah' era Happy Mondays, which is a very good thing indeed.
Switching between euphoric gentle pads into a gritty juxtaposition of drumstep noisiness seems and impossible feat, but it's task the duo set within their horizon. This is track seemingly made by those who measure each note with a sense of scientific precision. The cinematic intros nods to tracks grand scale which could easily see it placed in the 'stadium' bracket. The aptly named 'Aracnophilia EP' sees them work with the legendary Spyda MC for its entirety.
