VA: Feel the Beast

Ukrainian imprint Ghettofuck brings the noise on its FEEL THE BEAST | zadovolennya (‘pleasure') 12-inch with four monstrous tracks by Steady P, kIRk, and Ottosiderspunk. Duck when Steady P's (Swiss producer Patrick Lucca) “Big Onions” drops, a rude-and-crude, grindhouse throb that spews a skull-shattering cocktail of hammerhead techno, breakcore, and electro-rave. Ottosiderspunk (electronic duo and Ghettofuck owners Minikin and Valta) continue the mayhem with piledriving broken-beat-industrial anthems “We R” and “Toy Gangsta” (barking vocals make the latter even more grotesque). Mercifully closing the set in slightly less lethal style, Polish trio kIRk brightens the mood with a punchy hip-hop strut and chatty rhymes in “Na Ramie Bron.”
