df0:BAD: Absolete

Revisiting breakcore’s early Amiga and tracker days, this is a set of vicious breaks and sinister chiptune melodies using vintage equipment twisted to its limits. Bitcrunched, mangled breakbeats and chase-scene game music butt heads, resembling a soundclash between Abelcain and Bit Shifter. Chipbreak that’s out for blood but maintains a sense of cartoonish glee. “Ataripr0n” is a bit more happy-go-lucky, but the likes of “Fevered” and “Amiga Blood Circus” are more fiendish and head-battering, while “Better Find Out” is a gabber-rave knockout. All of this is extraordinarily fun and refreshing. Free download from Jason Forrest’s Cock Rock Disco, which still functions as a netlabel and occasionally releases incredible things on Bandcamp, such as this.
