A) RAIDEN - AQUARIUS
Kicking off proceedings we head straight to the title track – Aquarius by Raiden. Huge epic pads combine with razor sharp breaks and seriously heavy bass to create a truly spine chilling track. Aquarius captures the pure unadulterated sound of Hardware.
B) NC-17 - ATTITUDE ERA
Backing up the A side we welcome NC-17 to the fold with their Hardware debut. The duo cut straight to the chase to show you what they are all about with an all out bass driven roller in the form of Attitude Era. The subs on this track pound and grind the listener into submission. Taking no prisoners this is a savage bass bin work out.
C) LOXY & RESOUND - PSYCHOLOGY MOVES
Opening up disc two Hardware resident Loxy teams up with Finland’s Resound with “Psychology Moves”. Showcasing yet another hue in his already diverse audio palette, Loxy brings a tribal roll out. Straight up menacing & militant.
D) BTK - NOT GOING BACK
Finishing off the release in fine style we announce yet another Hardware debut, this time from Brazil’s BTK. Not Going Back is a hectic barrage of tech beats, laced with haunting vox and thunderous bass that will the leave the crowd punch drunk at any club in which its drawn.
My reaction is:
