The Bad Taste imprint is at it again this week with another big multi-artist release with some surprising titles. From household names like Current Value, underground producers like Agressor Bunx, all the way to artists in their infant stage – Mean Teeth. Molecular Music spans popularity levels just as well as it spans sub-genres of drum and bass, from the tear-your-face-off sound of Current Value’s “Conditioning”, all the way to the deep and dark “7th Circle” by Gydra and Mailky. With the range of talent and diverse sounds, there is one track that really stands out – Mean Teeth’s first release: “Nastiest”. The track opens up floating on airy pads, a granulated sound effect swirls back and forth between speakers, and tribal vocals chant and orchestrate the remainder of the intro. The track breaks down and small previews of sounds to come are revealed, but they pale in comparison to the levels of funk that approach. Driven by an infectious melody, tight drums, and absurd tones; “Nastiest” is nearly impossible to resist and dancing comes naturally. The groove, production quality, and overall song progression brought by this newly-formed Baltic trio is highly impressive, and it would be foolish not to keep an eye on these guys in the future.
I give the song an 8.5/10 and would like to say that the entire EP is worth taking a look at. Some favorites of mine include “7th Circle”, “Metrolab”, and “Conditioning”.
