Clyde automaton: X’d 4 U

Previously a producer of trippy lo-fi hip-hop instrumentals, Clyde automaton has switched to jungle and hardcore revivalism, and it’s abundantly clear that this territory was one of his first loves. X’d 4 U is his fourth EP in this vein, with the first two appearing on the the excellent DOMEOFDOOM label. It’s super focused and deadly, with style ranging from the ragga blitz “NEVER DIE [AGAIN]” to the heavy breakbeat roller “NETTO AMEN [packet mash]”. “TRASHED SON [freezrr]” is also a stone cold rave slammer which surfs over a tidal wave of bass. Only 4 tracks, but he’s putting out EPs so frequently that it hopefully won’t be long before his next release, because this rules.
