Razor X Productions - Killing Sound (2006)
For fans of: The Bug, Bogdan Raczynski, M.I.A.
Perhaps some of the hardest electronic music I've ever really enjoyed, this album is full of heavy crunchy bass, feedback, and lots of heavily processed electronic drum beats. It's as dense as an Autechre release and hits like an intense drum and bass album. On top of it all are various dance-hall raps, which are very good, but it's The Bug and The Rootsman's production that really shines here. It is made up of two discs with 10 tracks each, the first includes a variety of rappers, and the second includes instrumental dub versions of the 10 tracks. - Matthew Foster
