"Italian producer Distorted Drill’s new EP combines electro with hip-hop — something of a rarity, after the beginnings of the genre in the ’80s — and live hand percussion, resulting in a distinctive sound. ‘Acid Jungle’ is not the 303 led breakbeat avalanche you might hope for with that name, but instead a wild caper of acidic riffs, kinetic drums and the party hyping raps of Sardinian MC Phasz. Of particular note is ‘Didgeridoo Commander’, which weaves conga drums through an 808 beat and warping blasts of didgeridoo functioning as bass." DJ MAG - 8/10
Italian producer Distorted Drill teams up with Sardinian born rapper Phasz to deliver 4 tracks guaranteed to enhance the flow of any Electro set by breaking away from the expected norms and bringing a dose of good-natured funk.
Those already familiar with Distorted Drill will know he likes to explore the sound spectrum, moving around, keeping us on our toes, and with passion for experimentation being the continuous thread. Phasz comes from a Hip-Hop background, taking particular influence from UK Hip-Hop and weaving into electronica music effortlessly.
Electrica Savana takes the essential ingredients of tight broken beat rhythms, absorbing bass and alien synth work and adds organic drums and vox that purists will probably argue belong in another genre. While the purists wring their hands though, those that understand Bass Agenda Recordings, and what matters most in music, will be feeling the vibes, nodding their heads, and working up a sweat.
