These two tracks from XEROPOINT both flex some serious musical muscle!!!! We start with the abrasive synth’s and minimal beats of ‘Whats Up’. A harder and more hedonistic take on the stripped back style of D&B. The approach here is quite the opposite of the deep subs you might be used to. The synths growl and spit venom, often rudely interrupted by hoover riffs and subtle shades of 90s rave.
‘Badman’ sounds like The Predator creeping through the jungle waiting to ambush his prey. Crunchy beats, shards of the amen break. The aluminiferous hole punching bassline on this robust number seethes with computer rage and rudeboy attitude. XEROPOINT must have been pretty angry when he created these fearsome beasts in the lab. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!!!!
