Taxman – Konkrete Shoes / Distorted Reality
Following DJ Hazard’s badman battle weapon ‘Busta Move’ on PLAYAZ012, Playaz skip unlucky number thirteen and head straight for 014 with Taxman at the helm.
‘Konkrete Shoes’ laps at your heels with waves of eerie samples that build and morph through a minimal, almost Autonomic-style, intro.
For those of you wondering where the trademark Taxman filth is, it doesn’t take long for the warping sound effects and a humongous bassline to hove into view. With a drop that could kill a man at 20 paces, you’d better make sure you’ve got a secluded spot by the river to drop some bodies into!
On the flip ‘Distorted Reality’ opens with more smooth and silky sounds that are juxtaposed with clinical precision against clattering amens and a stomach churning reese. Packed with dancefloor smashing power, this one is sure to have everyone clamouring for the DJ booth.
This is another big release from Playaz, and just goes to show that 2011 is set to be another outstanding year for DJ Hype & Pascal’s crew of artists.
