'Jelyfunt Stampede' is a monstrous wave of a track which will leave you aurally drenched but gurgling for more.


November 14, 2008

The title track is an infectious builder that plods (in all the right ways), it sort of holds you trance-like and won't let go until the DJ brings the next track in with a massive thump. There's a real sense of nature and malvolent forces as the title is spookily whispered, whilst a soft but demented boomerang of a hoover noise whirls up a storm and then the drums and woodblocks creep in and build and up and up; surging and driving like a an elemental power.
My first experience of this monstrous sonic force was on Carl Cox's Fact 2 comp, where he really does utilise it to devestating effect. Later I came across it on an old Voodoo hours show that Steve Shiels used to host in Liverpool many moons ago - again it was used to whip up a storm before a thunderbolt of Techno cracked the airwaves open.
In a way this track could almost be the sound of what Deep Dish first envisioned for their Yoshitoshi imprint - epic, prog, tech - whatever you want to call it - house. But Middleton does it with such class and bravura that it's elevated to a status that transcends genres and is quite simply perfection (of sorts).
Heady stuff indeed and well worth seeking out.
