Rabit & Dedekind Cut: R&D EP

Rabit & Dedekind Cut: R&D EP

Out of nowhere, Rabit and Lee Bannon (now known as Dedekind Cut) just released this white label 12″ on Ninja Tune. It. Is. Un. Fucking. Believable. Rabit’s album was one of my absolute favorites from last year, and Bannon has been has been on a tear for a few years himself. But this 12-minute mini-epic blows all expectations out of the water. The four tracks here unpredictably jaunt between angry junglist soundclash bursts, gabber kicks, sparse yet bass-heavy hauntings, chopped-and-screwed snippets, and other sonic weaponry. There’s a few brief moments of stillness, but they’re violently, arrhythmically interrupted, and the third track feels like an all out war. The final track is a melting, aching post-garage track which brings to mind the fact that Burial hasn’t released anything in a while, but with other people making music this astonishing, I think we can wait a little longer. I feel like there’s going to be a lot of music like this in 2016, and I’m excited.
