Hooverian Blur: SNKRX09

Lead track “Square Jazz” has one of those basslines that would just make you feel gooey when it’s played on a loud enough sound system, and the breakbeats and spacey synth noises just compound this into foolproof club elevator. “Sirens” is a solid breakbeat tune, but a little repetitive and feels more like a B-side. After that are two mixes of “Old Gold”, Hooverian Blur’s excellent single from 2 years ago which unabashedly flashes back to the rave era, with bits of “Vamp” and “Valley of the Shadows” stuck in. Low End Activist’s mix starts out with tricky electro beats in the beginning, then absolutely slams some distorted breaks in later, while stretching the sample of the lady recalling being in a long dark tunnel. There’s also a more ambient mix that just focuses on the flickering, glittering synths and squirming bass.
