Germany's man-of-the-moment - Twisted from the Dutty Dubz Crew - graces Tsunami Audio with the Blackout EP... and it certainly is dutty. 4 tracks to feed your fix, these bangers are just what the doctor ordered. We start off with the title tune 'Blackout' which uses intricate and sophisticated percussion to underscore a fierce mid-bassline that drills itself relentlessly into your brain. 'Not One Of Us' featuring Markie J follows and keeps up the pressure - a huge tune and credit to Markie J for straddling the line between simply a vocal sample and the trap that most MCs fall into, which is trying to do too much! These two have been working together for some time and the result is a balanced track with great atmospheric buildup and devastating mid-bass which tears up the dancefloor and rocks the car/iPod at the same time. Let's get grimey! 'Fear' is a first-class stomper, old-skool but at the same time fresh and crunchy as a new bag of crisps! Rounding things out, up-and-comer Depone remixes 'Rock This', a track from the inaugural Tsunami Audio release, and does it more than justice utilizing a writhing, infectious mid-bassline but keeping the vibe and percussive action of the original intact. The result is all you could ask for and more. Gwan! Get the Blackout EP now and get to know badman Twisted once again!
