Very popular, that post-Hip-Hop, paradiddling, fidgetty drum rhythm - very close to Drum 'n' Bass without being as fast or perhaps as clever.

DELPHIUM have joined the agitated frenetics brigade, and this three-tracker shows them as much as Noise Monkeys as they are riddim programmers. And these tracks are packed with noises - droning bassline, whining synth motifs and all manner of grizzle compete for pole position in a mass dogpile mix, all frantic to appear prevelant. It reminds me of people as varied as AUTECHRE or REGIS. Busy, chunky, confrontational dance music with heaps of variety.

The third track which spans the second side is perhaps more passive, a more melodic although no less battering listening experience. Out of the three pieces here it is perhaps the more memorable with some nice lush keyboards and a distinctive sample motif.
