RAVETRX: Tribe Sequence

The newest release on Sherelle’s label is a debut release that instantly leaves a huge impression. “Feel the Way” smashes its way in with some demolishing Amen breaks and a memorable sample. Then “EEEEEE” is stomping industrial techno with playful yeah-woos and some more breakbeats and Detroit techno chords patched in. Plus it’s structured so suspensefully. “Feels Good Inside” is a stompy rave belter with guest producer Mani Festo, also balancing thumps with breaks, and it tucks some acid in there. “Facebook Karen” and “Tyson’s Fury” are similarly relentless no-nonsense techno, also with nods to rave. Finally, “Tribe Sequence Calling” barrels along with less jungle/breakbeat influence than the others, but lets out some sampled diva wailing at the end. Really hard, awesome EP that takes elements of early ’90s techno and just streamlines them and bangs them out.
