A new year, a new slew of sickness from chief filth peddlers Funkatech… And it starts with a lewd ode to the original badboys of modern music: rock stars.

So press play, grab a TV set and throw it out of the nearest window as hard as you can. Funkatech mainstays Specimen A have totally rewritten the naughty rulebook with this stomping, low-swung glitch-ridden salute to the hairy heroes of guitar music feat the vocal talents of up & coming rapper Suffice. Complete with a rifle-style riff, stadium-ready synth stabs, anthemic bass trills and a spitfire list of antics so wild they’d make Axl Rose blush, it’s a fine reminder of the carnage this Brighton-based trio can cause.

Defenestrated TVs aside, there’s plenty more bad behaviour across this handsome five track multi-genre EP. As well as a swear-free version of ‘Rock Star’ we also have the following…

‘All Or Nothing’ is sheer audio drama. Swaggering in at a cool half-time drum & bass tempo, it lives up to its name in every way. Snarling and sneering with an utterly schizophrenic bassline, it’s instant grime time… Until we’re slapped in the chops with a searing synth hook that’s so dreamy it shoots us into hyperspace with no return ticket.

Up next: ‘Unforgettable’. A next-level lesson in euphoric bass, here we find the trio hooking up with firebrand chanteuse Nickita. The end result genuinely is unforgettable as we’re flicked and flung between a pumping 4/4 and swashbuckling halfstep so quickly you’ll find it hard to keep up. Laced with rich emotion and raw energy, save this one for end-of-night scenarios or those moments when your crowd need a serious level-up!

Finally we hit ‘Closer’ where extreme party vibes are the essential order of the day. Showcasing their D&B abilities with unfettered aplomb, this hook-up with the ever-emphatic Miss Trouble balances toxic levels of heaviness with fleeting moments of euphoric beauty to create a D&B fusion that’s not dissimilar to Chase & Status at their darkest or Black Sun Empire at their most emotional. With chest-shattering double kicks and firesome bass to match, it’s a fitting statement of intent for the year ahead from both Specimen A and Funkatech.
