Just when you thought it was safe to switch on your turntables! Meet your doom in the throes of Neutronic Beats’ latest club killer from label governor and Cyber-Punk-World architect, DJ Manga. Be sure to check the phenomenal artwork which typifies the complete brand package which this per-eminent label has come to exemplify. With club play and presence from the Neutronic Beats family at DEF:INITION, NU:ERA and BPM to name but a few, this is one cut which is blowing up a storm all over the metropolis this summer.
– Request Denied
With a classic manga sampled opening of wistful, harmonious strings and xylophone, this murderous track lulls the listener into a totally false sense of security before blowing off their head with its callous “Tell them their request is denied” vocal sample and carnivorous monster bassline. Obscenely cut and pitched cowbell percussion gives an original twist to the punchy steppers break while the riotous bass pattern is filtered and manipulated beyond belief. This is one infectious slice of technological combat and essential DJ box ammunition- lounge music meets a baptism of fire… gun fire!
Clarinet and strings comprise the sampled overture for the double A-side, combined with a long-release, vocal sample, “Excalibur!”. DJ Manga knows how to build pressure and bring the noise with an expertise which leaves most of us slack-jawed in disbelief and this track is no exception. Filtered breaks, contagious bongos and masterful fills fuel the drive, while the high energy, complexly morphed baseline does not fail to deliver a blow to the midsection powerful enough to compel the quietest of wall flowers to bust moves which would make Ri-Ri blush to her roots!
