Hellzone Megapunk EP
TBR: April 13th
Perc Trax break open 2018 by scooping up Scalameriya from his own Genesa label and relentless touring and putting out a follow-up record to 2016's Kepslok. Two years have passed since Scalameriya has worked on Perc Trax, and undoubtedly he has some new moves to show them. This three track number signifies that business is better than usual with a mighty anime mech artwork and a trio of individually worked mixes.
It begins with a tribal bass beat that bounces along in a smooth and easy to dance to tempo. It's soon replaced by some distorted garbled voices and general white noise that almost sounds in time As it flows through the initial wall of sound, the rhythm section is reintroduced and it all makes a lot more sense. Dirty and noisy, the thumping intrusiveness grabs the base section of the body and yanks it towards the mass of people already dancing. Hellzone Megapunk as a track stays rational and yet remains completely outside the box. Industrial infused techno with percussive nonsense create a sparkling pie of meaty proportions.
Another train like push of sound thrusts Crucible into action and as machine gun style snare fills rage into the first chapter, bass and added effects give the full sound. Rhythmic festivities which would make an awesome light-show pound and strobe in twirling loops of ever evolving flux. Swishes from left to right with swinging distortions bring out another layer to this highly mixable track. There's plenty of space for filling in and utilising catchy fills with this first B side. The second B track, Let My Flesh Be Your Sacrament, continues the journey of dance-floor profundity. A rhythm much like the previous one repels any notion of change and yet everything else shifts towards razor like synths and crackling rhythms of sound. Another layer of drums join the pulsating bass which peaks above the sludgy distortion its coated in.
Almost a combination of A and B to make C, this EP is a powerful and interesting dynamo of inventive techno. Pointed truly at the dance floor,with a high energy arena of inspirations and technology, Hellzone Megapunk makes a lot of noise and entertains with a unique style.
