d'Eon: Foxconn / Trios 12" EP

d’Eon: Foxconn / Trios 12″ EP

I haven’t been keeping up with the output of d’Eon too closely, but he’s put out some amazing stuff, especially the hardcore/jungle EP he did under the name Kallisti. This EP came out last month on Kuedo’s new label and I’m just getting around to listening now, but already on first listen it is completely decimating my mind. Very intense Mark Fell/DJ Clap hyper-MIDI-juke, with shreds of late-night ’80s digital future melodies and dirty South beats poking through. And titles like “Samsung India Software Operations” (in two parts) and “Satyam Integrated Engineering Solutions”. And then “Datamatics Global Services II” throws in jungle breaks. Holy hell. “Foxconn II” brings things back down to earth with a more straightforward atmospheric trap song, but it still sounds really good. Apparently these tracks were made in 2012. They were ahead of their time then and they’re still ahead of their time. I’m glad I actually got around to hearing them before the year ended, I wouldn’t have wanted to keep sleeping on this one into the new year.
