A new label and group project, 4 6 2 5, which is a cloak and dagger affair but bears (we think?!) obvious traces of Pessimist, Vega, Karim Maas and Overlook. A kind of UVB-76 allstars then, and as good, and as diverse, as you would expect of that: 'Non Citizen' slows and pares down Source Direct's snake style into a droning, minimal drum-funk, while ‘Proles’, mid-tempo breakbeats hooked onto its brittle, reduced electro chassis, feels like the natural extension of experiments undertaken by Pessimist on last year's self-titled LP. It's almost certainly the shadowy Karim Maas behind (ace) club-hassle / noise pressure-cooker  'Cassette_A' but the EP's most vital, vicious and sound-bombing offering is ‘The Barrens’: a ferociously on-point dungeon stepper, driven by planet-gargling Reese bass, that sounds like the long-awaited reincarnation of Ruffhouse. Granite-hard and ultra-alienated, but also swinging and dubwise, it owes as much to classic Sandwell District as it does to dnb - but this is music concerned not with genre, only fully righteous, rave-demolishing intensity. Such a banger!
