Northern Powerhouse is a collaboration between Alex Handley and Nigel Rogers, the brains behind the Perseus Traxx project among others. According to Rogers, "We basically bang machines and have a laugh." As this fourth instalment in the series demonstrates, this approach seems to work. ‘Need Money For Bread’ is a murky affair, led by lo-fi drums, dusky synths and menacing acid squiggles. 'Rinse That SH**' is more minimalist, with the pair delivering a grimy, gritty workout that resounds to menacing bass and a wild acid climax.
