Bolshy breakstep from Berlin’s Fjaak, backed with thuggish Pinch remix and recoiling rework by Cocktail Party Effect.
Now a duo after Kevin Kozicki left in early 2019 (so we can’t really call them a boy “band” anymore), Fjaak bare their teef in ruder, rambunctious ways with the barrelling breakstep force of WH?T coming off like an aggy Shed piece, while the cranky acid-electro spurt of XoXp0rt recalls Funckarma cuts from 15 years ago. Pinch weighs in a more schizoid, bone-crunching remix of WH?T, and Cocktail Party Effect win out for us with wilder remix of the latter, full of recursive trills and catapulting bass.
