Once again this week I find myself in gratitude to Youtube’s favourite underground celebrity Hurfyd, who’s introduced me to this banger of a remix by Matrixxman of Alis’s ‘Apache’. Little known to most this guy has been running through a great spell of productions as of late; this most recent effort showcasing great variance in structure and synth interplay. A gritty gurning jaw turning beast, Apache symbolises Matrixxman’s primetime club appeal offering an oppressive chugging bassline, hollow rattling bongos and a persistent but all too welcomed thumping 4/4 kick drum. Sinister stuff, and a perfect addition to the raw industrial orientations of the 5th wall lads across the Atlantic, who’ve rightly snapped this up for a release.
