DJ SpiderNinja Drive-By EP
A key component in New York’s techno scene, over recent years the Plan B Recordings and Sublevel Sounds founder has graced the likes of The Trilogy Tapes, BleeD, KilleKill and Vanguard Sound! Releasing on Rekids as the label celebrates 10 years, Spider’s ‘Ninja Drive-By’ defines why so many hold the American stalwart in such high regard.
‘Dirt Nap’ leads the release with syncopated percussion and a thumping low-end that takes no prisoners. ‘TMC’ is a more subdued production in comparison, blending shadowy synths with an intricate drum workout. ‘Planetary DisFunkshun’ then introduces a penetrating melody amongst robust kicks, until ‘Montag’ concludes the package with moody pads and an inimitable rhythm.
