Evil Nine - The Power
Futuristic electro possessing a fuzzily brazen alternative kick grabs you immediately when ‘The Power', takes hold and Evil Nine unleash a swirling instrumental grind. Through which they will surely induce a mixture of spasmodic robotics and the odd spontaneous combustion. It's the darkly chilling moments that provides a real edge, mimicking the kind of sound and impact that's often so often used to build up to a chainsaw wielder's entrance into a church in low budget horrors.
Slowly booming, hypnotic percussion loops lay a foundation for the Pendulum skirting, Drum N' Bass old skool vibe reviving, ‘The Night'. Before the track veers off in a funky disco direction keeping energy to the fore. This Brighton formed duo of Tom Beaufoy and Pat Pardy, blends together 80s dance/disco sounds with brazen backbeats, concocting a rhythmic broth of lively and spirited electro. Bounding out of a Drum N' Bass box like a stripper leaping out of a cake.
‘The Heat', is the least varied offering of the three, but its digital tinkering shows that they still possess the ability to dabble in the off-kilter, nodding and winking at Mogwai. Evil Nine, with this trio of bold and ranging tracks demonstrates broadness in appeal and will surely enhance their reputation for energy, diversity and oodles of rhythm.
