Lifestyle Music – Mean Teeth – Gutterfunk/Hydra – [Review]


We plugged into the latest offering from now Trio, Mean Teeth, since earlier in the year with the addition of a 3rd member by the name of ‘Cosmistic’, if you hadn’t been keeping up… This release comes via the “Lifestyle Music” imprint and bears with it two tracks that further cement Mean Teeth’s place in the scene with their relentless sound and showcasing how they can switch it down a notch too.

The track ‘Gutterfunk’ employs a steady roller vibe to it, an almost broody vibe tinged with necessary grit on the bassline whilst MC Kerizma’s vocal work greatly compliments it with a vivid depiction of the scenery through his words. Then comes in ‘Hydra’, a track which features the collaborative effort of artist ‘Skylark’. The track intros in with swooshes that give that chilling feeling of when you enter unknown territories, and movements are happening right behind as you slip into the drop of this tune and realize how it flawlessly flows with great weight throughout. Great material from the MT crew.



Kinetik Records – Kursiva – Waveform Shapeshifter LP – [Review]


Waveforms shapeshifting all the way out of Spain from man like Kursiva, who’s been seen incorporating some of his turn-tabling into his DnB productions. Delivering a 12 track LP of uncompromised production, the “Waveform Shapeshifter” LP is presented by Belgian label “Kinetik Records”.

The LP is unapologetically Neuro driven but so well curated which sees kursiva fully flexing his production finesse, and really non-monotonous. Featuring tracks like “Shattered” which come hissing at you with a thick, grounded bass that’s well designed to crack ribcages. And “Press 2 Play” with torn synth worn work and a piercing groove is well crafted to have you pacing up more than normal. To rolling tracks like “Speedline” sprinkled with some mad funk in them & halftime breakdowns. Definitely, something in this for everyone to include in their sets. The track “Hydra” is a monster with an insatiable appetite of obliterating dance-floors with its menacing drum work. And of course, the title track which has dumbfounded me. This is one number which will definitely have heads turning and inducing screw faces of note! Fresh album from man like kursiva.
