Dead Man’s Chest & Posse: SNRK018 12″ EP

Dead Man’s Chest is one of the absolute best artists making oldskool jungle right now, and Sneaker Social Club has similarly been issuing top-notch breakbeat hardcore and neo-rave music. This EP isn’t quite as heavy and junglistic as other DMC releases. Most of the tracks are collaborations and they’re a bit more spacious and club-friendly. “We All Got a Little Mad Sometimes” (with Response) is straight up alien-channeling music; I can’t tell where that droney synth bed is from but it sounds like some sort of horrifying sci-fi thriller. “The Dead Will Dance” (with Coco Bryce) has fun with zombie movie samples and an evil bassline. Solo track “Exorcisms” is all storming breaks and horror movie samples (at least one is from Poltergeist), and it’s equally fun and terrorizing.
