Catch A Fire

Ninja Tune
A bleary, gurning flashback screeches across my vision as the moody malevolence of 'Skeng' eeks from speakers, but instead of Flow Dan's gravely patois, out comes Hitomi's bittersweet lyrics of urban decay. A poisoned lullaby if ever I heard one. Autechre's remix of 'Skeng' is pure industrial bleakness, while the Roots Manuva collab sadly disappoints. 'Poison Dart' also gets a commendable remix from Scratcha DVA, who has to work really hard to match the intensity of the original.
