Darkmatter Soundsystem – Accretion EP [coll] – [Darkmatter Soundsystem]
Back in 2002, the Darkmatter Soundsystem guys were one of my first introductions to breakcore, when I saw them put on a show with Hecate and Venetian Snares in a warehouse in LA. These guys were hard as f*ck back then, and it seems that in over a decade, they haven’t lost their edge. The accretion EP is breakcore, LA underground style: unfiltered, nasty hardc0re techno drums, screeches, breakbeats and drones. This is raw and uncut, with roots in the gabber, hardcore and jungle scenes of 90’s LA. Tracks by Minion, Poxxe, Fiend and Resurrector ranging from 190bpm breakbeat assault to gabber influenced 140bpm dubstep-mocking hardcore, with a bonus scratch track from Baseck. These guys are still doing it hard.
