Press Release :
The legendary Luke Vibert, under one of his many aliases.
Vibert needs little introduction, with albums since 1993 on Rising High, MoWax, Planet Mu, Warp, Ninja and of course, Rephlex. He has recorded under many aliases since then, most notably Wagon Christ, Plug, Ace of Clubs, Butler Kiev and also more recently as Amen Andrews and Kerrier District. Together with Aphex Twin and Squarepusher, he is noted for being a vital cornerstone in the triumvirate of braindance supremacy.
Amen Andrews burst onto the scene in 2003 with five limited edition DJ test-pressing releases on Rephlex. With these he participated in Plug's classic drum and bass style, raving it up with a junglist cocktail shaker. The records sold like hot cakes on vinyl and, ever since, the label had been hounded for a CD release from this old school TV host. Well now it's here, a sample-frenzied assault akin to the work of legends like Soundmurderer, Remarc and Dillinja.
The album kicks off with an ode to London by Spac Hand Luke, in an industrial R&B style. But don't be fooled... straight after that we're into dangerous territory with uptempo slammers such as "1 Shot Killer Pussy," "Multiple Stab Wounds" and "Murder." This action-packed rollercoaster ride is occasionally peppered with a hail of garage-style bullets, slower in pace but just as deadly. This album is only for the headstrong, but these b-boy bruisers still manage to stop the panic through crisp production and concise musical accuracy.
An essential one to check for lovers of raga/drum & bass/hip-hop/dubstep.
