Moabeat Underground’s debut LP is quite an atmospheric release. The first track gently starts and through the album somehow the energy level is raised steadily until the last track again slowly dies with distorted tango sounds and launching New Year rockets. But that doesn’t really mean you get stompers in between. You’ll instead encounter a world of morbid however pleasing sound, sometimes funny, sometimes aggressive with beautiful moments. A lot of samples and many rhythmic layers are arranged in a patchwork style whereas melodies and vocals are rather subtle. Finally although quite a few muffled sounds and generally confusing structures are in use most of the songs are still danceable. So some of them might be a good choice for the later hours.

My favorites are all on the A-side. Fear is a gloomy as groovy track, sounding like an army of undead marching with moderate speed until their unholy choir murmurs during the breaks. Soldiers is an even weirder piece of music. More vigorous then fear, it has some confused babblings next to laser voices culminating in echoing chaos. Stuck ultimately reminds me of a cosy roadside picnic. At the beginning you only hear burbling water, then the bassline and later sounds of passing motorcycles appear before finally some melody fades in alongside some stronger beats.

Funny thing if you play the record on 45 rpm some tracks sound like nervous, happy breakbeat but not more out of tune than otherwise.
