Genre pick of the week Cover of Hyena - Vinyl Edition by The The.

The The

Hyena - Vinyl Edition

    Double album pressed on 140gm custom blue colour housed inside a 425 gsm leather look sleeve with an etching on side 4, also comes with full colour booklet and an exclusive lobby card.

    Death Waltz Recording Company are proud to bring you a modern classic from one of Britain’s most revered bands. Directed by Gerard Johnson, Hyena is a breakneck thriller dealing with Police corruption in West London with an incredibly atmospheric score by Matt Johnson aka The The. Following super-bent copper Michael, Hyena highlights the dark and grimy side of being on the take, with none of the flash and glamour usually seen in movies like this. The The – scoring their second movie with Gerard Johnson after TONY – give the film an evocative soundtrack that weaves between seduction and horror.

    The score to HYENA comes across like a fever dream; vignettes of hip-hop and house beats with incredible synthesizer melodies laid on top, threatening electronic effects roaring like a Formula 1 car engine, even choral sections with haunted vocals that show the inevitable influence of Vangelis. Instrumentation is eclectic, with electric and acoustic guitars creating anticipation and dissonance while steel drums and Eastern strings subconsciously illustrate the diversity of the area. Similarly, HYENA combines its musical influences to produce a score that reflects the danger of Michael’s situation but also the exhilaration. No matter how you feel about corruption or the police, HYENA is essential.

      The masters were re-mixed from the original multi-track session tapes by long-time John Carpenter associate Alan Howarth.

      This is the first time the expanded edition has appeared on vinyl in its complete form,

      including original dialogue highlights.

      DMX Krew

      Funk Steps / Space Fonk

      Two brand-new hard electro-funk jams from label boss Ed DMX. Sure to be popular with funk and boogie revivalists as well as electro and breakdance fans. "Funk Steps" features a sparse, handclap-heavy beat, an arabian-style synth hook, some very greasy guitar playing and a vocoder lead vocal imploring the listener to get down and do their thing on the dancefloor. "Space Fonk" is an uptempo synth-funk number with squelchy synth bass, vocoder hook and live tambourine and guitar. Moogs and lazer zaps all over this one.Ed DMX continues to DJ & perform live around the world: recent bookings include Bloc Weekend, Batofar in Paris, Berghain in Berlin and many more while Fresh Up continues to cement itself as the go-to label for all things relevant in new boogie and funk music.
