Juventa & Johnny Yono
From its opening drums (which sound like someone banging a pair of breezeblocks together) on, 'The Machine' is an unstoppable, inexorable and visceral thrill. It marries relentless bottom end chug with gripping, ear-twitching sound fission up top. Slick and stylistically androgynous, it boasts not one, but two 'just-when-you-think-it-can't-get-any-bigger' moments. In this day and age you really can't say much better than that.
