This music is some of the best Amigacore in the past 10 years – skirting between party music for the post-apocalyptic crowd and a nightmarish take on otherwise light-hearted themes. What’s most remarkable about these tunes isn’t necessarily Hexadeci’s programming expertise (he’s totally awesome), or the creative use of seemingly random samples (Shakira? A Swiss yodeler?). No, it’s how he manages to effectively tear down dance music to shape his own tastes *AND* create tunes that are actually MUSICAL, instead of slipping into the same tired traps of hardcore posturing. It’s a fun record and we promise you’ll get some seriously confused looks when you drop a Swiss Yodelcore track at your next house party. Try it. Film it. Send us the video.
It’s exciting, it’s loud, it’s flawed, it’s idea-driven and it’s how we like it. We know you will too.
