Editor’s note: I am very pleased to present our newest Beatery contributor: Flicker! Flicker and I go so far back that we actually were friends before we even knew what electronic music was. As our first non-DJ blogger Flicker is going to fill in some holes I feel we have in our coverage of the electronic music cosmos. Taking the the “D” out of EDM, look forward to hearing everything from ambient to break-core. Speaking of which, take it away Flicker! ~ Jay
As this is my first submission to The Beatery, I thought that I would post something a little brutal. Take it!!
Bong-ra is one of the more well-known breakcore producers, and while he is generally categorized as raggacore, he has produced a few tracks in the last five years or so that sample some great Slayeresque guitar with his familiar breakbeat sound. The album “Full Metal Racket” is a combination of songs from two previous releases – “Sick Sick Sick” and “Grindkrusher” – plus a couple of remixes by Doormouse and Sick Boy.
I’m sure that we can all list off a dizzying number of electronic music sub-genres, and here is one more.
I present to you: Death Breaks! Drum and Slays? Intelligent Thrash Core. I don’t know what it’s called but I love it, and I want other producers to jump on the bandwagon. I think it’s obvious that death metal and breakcore go together like pickles and peanut butter (meaning a delicious combination). That’s a fact – look it up.
The following tracks are my picks for best of the album.
