Once again the UVB-76 crew cut loose with their latest DROOGS white label, new recruit Holsten supplying a double-dose of breakbeat ruff riders that offer the perfect marriage of old-skool jungle argy-bargy and ultra-criss, 2018-worthy production... 'Abcess' (nice!) is perhaps the closest to the actual mothership UVB sound (think Gremlinz, Ruffhouse etc) that the DROOGS series has come, with its minimal, cavernous sound design, endless layers of drone menace, and a bassline that’s pure dancefloor NAPALM; 'Momentum' has more of an enervated, ants-under-your-skin vibe, putting us in mind of the free/squat tekno of late '90s Perce~Oreille. Oui! After two brutishly direct instalments, this third is definitely the deepest and kinda the wildest DROOGS so far. You say Holsten, we say, er, PILLS?!!! (sorry.)
