Thugwidow: Post Modern

Prolific modern junglist’s newest EP on Sneaker Social Club has a renegade spirit as well as a heart. The tracks all have crisp, heavy breaks as well as elastic bass which divebombs and performs almost acrobatic feats. “Invisible Shell of Energy” is a standout, with more atmospheric pads, a slower tempo, and an intro sample about unity. The track itself isn’t exactly melancholy but it has more of a reflective vibe, soaking in the all-together-as-one vibe rather than shouting in ecstasy. “The Sacrifice” is harder, rougher ragga-tinged jungle with crushing breaks and bass that absolutely plummets to the depths. “The Voices Beneath the Earth” is more breakbeat hardcore, but it also feels like it’s reaching downward and summoning something deep under the crust.
