About this item

Lord Tusk takes it back to the start for the twentieth edition of the Tusk catalogue, treating us to a tense and terse various artists 12" completely in keeping with the label's signature sound - darkly danceable, aggresive and synthetic, out of its mind on acid. Label favourite Heretic opens hostilities with the mechanised assault of "Afflication", a brooding club creature armed with writhing 303 lines, creeping sequences and a hard as nails beat - turn the volume up and the lights down. Taking a sip from the same batch, TX Connect picks up the lysergic gauntlet and slowly but surely bludgeons you senseless with corrosive 303 lines and pummelling 808s. Don't fuck with this guy! Over on the flip, things take a turn for the funky with Antoni Maiovvi's "Brutus", a mind altering hit of tribal magic which combines tumbling African drumming with the producer's usual horror-core synths. Sound the alarm - we've got a B2 secret weapon on our hands. The mysterious Future Unit make their Tusk Wax debut with a mid tempo masterpeice which pulls together frisky breakbeats, phat ass acid, funk guitar and searing pace synth. Is it acid house, is it cosmic disco, is it a bass-laden ALFOS chugger? Who cares - Baldelli would play it, I'd play it and so would you!
