v/a: LT​-​GLOBE​-​XX2

Neo-jungle crew Globex Corp returns to Lobster Theremin with another set of tracks to splash us into summer. Dwarde & Tim Reaper start it off with “Hydraulics”, which is refreshing like a trip down a tall waterslide, but with a kick like eating a spicy meal at a picnic while you’re taking a break from outdoor activities. DJ Sports’ remix of a Dwarde/Reaper track brings the smashy breaks and kinda grimy bass. Richard Harrow’s “Aftermath” is a nine-minute trek which takes its time to build up sludgy breaks, very slowly applying shimmering atmospheres and traces of vocals. There’s very subtle changes to the breaks and other sounds, but they make an impact. And then Merph & Mantissa’s “Whip” just slaps plain and simple. The breaks roll along, only slightly cracked to the point of absurdity, but then it just becomes a full-on deluge, until it just stops dead at the end.
