Icicle: NT (Sentry Records)

camberwell-carrot“…utilising up to twelve skins” (Withnail & I, 1987)

I really have to plumb the Dubstep depths these days to find anything worth taking home…overfished to the point of being another endangered species – and the stocks that remain seem to get genetically weaker and weaker (lack of diversity or shrinking breeding grounds? we’ll leave that to the researchers).

I’d say I currently operate a 98% harvest return rate. Over the side. Back ya go.

Occasionally Mr. Focused Plod aka Youngsta‘s label trots out a tune or two, proving the old adage that even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day (see above heh).

Icicle rolls the joint up nice and phat on “NT”. Tasty, almost Gabber hard 909 hats stutter in at 2:45 (that’s the best bit really) and the plod starts to hint at something more pounding. Wish I hadn’t looked at the swellhead’s website though;

“Jeroen Snik – aka Icicle – is recognised as one of the most technically advanced and highly-respected producers in electronic music.”

?!?

A certain Brainbombs song comes instantly to mind…
