Worst Behavior Vol.3

Worst Behavior
Bell Curve and Anna Morgan’s Worst Behavior has put out just five releases in two years, but has positioned itself as an essential outlet for hybridised rave music. Its longest compilation to date, ‘Vol. 3’ is a tale of two halves. The first, dreamy footwork and footwork-jungle concoctions, like Nikki Nair’s delicate ‘Pah’, the ritualistic ‘DarkWhite’ by Mars Kasei & Deeplinkin, and transportive bleeps of Yazzus’ ‘Dreamwalker’ and DJ FLP’s ‘Tunnel’. The second ruptures the peace with peak-time boisterousness, as with the thunderous chug of DJ Girl’s ‘Psychosis’, Stranjah’s imposing, halftime ‘Fortress’, and the unabashed ‘Slurpee’ by bastiengoat — a raucous turbo cut that leans towards happy hardcore. Tied off by a jungle deconstruction by Bell Curve, those whose sets hover around 160-170bpm will find this an indispensable collection. BEN HINDLE
