General Ludd – Hitit / Kickout [CDR12006]

Tom ‘Dam Mantle’ Marshallsay and Rich ‘Golden Teacher’ McMaster’s debut under the General Ludd alias, The Fit of Passion EP on Mister Saturday Night, was a delightfully sweaty concoction – a riotous trip into percussive, off-kilter house territory laden with dense percussion, obscure funk samples and addictive rhythms. Here, they pop up on local Glaswegian label Clan Destine with an altogether murkier proposition – two tracks of fuzzy, horror-tinged, darkroom oddness. There’s a wayward, tipsy late night feel to the dense beats, nightmarish noises and curious samples on “Hitit”, while “Kickit” – complete with obligatory MC5 sample (as bitten by the KLF all those years ago) – layers throbbing sub-bass and spooky noises over a sparse but intense rhythm. Both tracks are neither house nor techno, but something altogether more intriguing.

Boston 168 – The Drill EP [OY007]

Boston 168 is a project born thanks to the ”infamous” duo formed by D-Vince and Sergio Pace, a new way inside Old and Young’s mind. Slow, dirty and rotten. A flow that comes direct from the analog machines. To complete the EP Old and Young is pleased to present Drvg Cvltvre, the man from Tilburg remixed one track with his style which ranges between doom disco / psychic house / slow, doomy, dark house and techno.
