Raczynski, Bogdan – “Samurai Math Beats” – [Rephlex]
1999 sophomore release from Polish born Japanese hobo drill’n’bass madman that might leave you hyperventilating and seeing stars if you try and hit the dance floor to these flurries. Bass heavy breaks superimposed by hazy lullaby melodies on cheap keyboards induce a momentous confusion of pre-teen daydream proportions. Non-stop hyperfrenetic playtime of awkward nerd homebody rave party delusions, full of kung fu standoffs, boss battling and mathematical sensory overload. Pretty pre-pubescent narration to the fast-forward video game adventures contrast with the crunchy megabeat chaos. Beeping buzzing beauty that characterized his earlier work before he started to calm things down in the new millenium. Take em while they’re hot!
