By this release, we’ve already been treated to a glimpse of what to expect from the “20 Years of Technique” album with Glitch City’s explosive remix of Drumsound & Bassline Smith’s “Skumbag”. Now, DC Breaks takes the reins on a reworking of another Technique classic, Tantrum Desire’s “Airhead”.
A calm-before-the-storm arpeggio dances across the intro, but the first touch of savagery isn’t far behind. A militant half-time beat breaks down into an epic sequence of risers, stabs and building percussion that stamps DC Breaks’ authority on the track and lets us know they’ve brought something brand new to the table.
The explosive drop confirms that Tantrum Desire’s original creation has been gene-spliced and mutated into a whole new monster. The bubbling funk has been transformed into a relentless assault of twisted basses and stomping drums, as the DC Breaks guys take us one step deeper into neuro-fuelled mania.
All in all, this is a beast of a track. Bringing a whole new vibe to a well-loved tune is a challenging proposition, but DC Breaks have knocked it out of the park.
