Crackerz & Jam
There's almost a silly Sidney Samson vibe to this latest from the exciting East Anglian nubreed pairing. C&J pivot 'Rocket' around a squeaky electronic top line, sorta recalling dirty houser 'Riverside' in making the incessant squeaking the whole track, but with added neo electronic cowbells and whooshes. Label boss D-Funk reduces the squeak to just a distant sample in his dark clanging Woolford-esque metallic overhaul, and Alien Nation reinterpret superbly in a punchy, rasping, acidic, slightly bleepy fashion. Stellar package.
