Brandon Spivey & Coexsystems – Sound Extremism / Kali Yuga
It looks like in 2012 we hear an acid comeback and this transparent, limited seven inch on Audio Riots, a new german label, fits in. The A side from Brandon Spivey, who released several acid hardcore 12″s under different names in the nineties, and a 12″ on Phase Distortion Records recently, brings a stomping hardcore track and a nervous acidline reminiscent of some of the tracks he made as Agro on Epsilon Records in 95/96. The only strange part in this track is the vocal sample throughout which sounds a bit displaced but its just a little drawback, its a good track after all. The B side is the real hit on this one. Coexsystems, who is a producer from germany, made a fast forward pushing track with a classical build up, including breakdowns that just play the relentless acidline alone in order to bring up the tension, and that is what makes the track come alive. The tracks are around the 4 and 5 minutes marks so they could have been a bit longer for the full effect, but it is still a good acid-core vinyl after all. [Read more →]
