Distorted Drill & Phasz

Electrica Savana

Bass Agenda
Italian producer Distorted Drill’s new EP combines electro with hip-hop — something of a rarity, after the beginnings of the genre in the ’80s — and live hand percussion, resulting in a distinctive sound. ‘Acid Jungle’ is not the 303 led breakbeat avalanche you might hope for with that name, but instead a wild caper of acidic riffs, kinetic drums and the party hyping raps of Sardinian MC Phasz. Of particular note is ‘Didgeridoo Commander’, which weaves conga drums through an 808 beat and warping blasts of didgeridoo functioning as bass.
