For our third release, we welcome back the collaborative efforts of our three family members Mia Dora, HaHaHa & Raksha. Joining forces once again, they depart from the awkward rhythms and stuttered arrangements of their first joint outing and instead offer up a slab of relentless, dance floor shattering techno. From the opening, an almost hypnotic drum pattern comprised of both live and synthesised sounds fills the track with atmosphere and instills a real sense of urgency in the listener. The moment the bassline is introduced, however, the purpose of Ill-defined becomes clear - to bring your warehouse party crashing to it's knees one drop at a time.
On the flip, the ever adept Dam Mantle has take time to offer up what must be described as a re-edit in the truest sense of the word. Extending and re-imagining the track in his own unique way, he opens by somehow adding an extra sense of menace to the already unnerving original. As it grows, things move in a completely different direction and the final sexed up, key driven crescendo leaves you wondering how you got there in the end.
