Le Crabe & Optimis GFN - EP [Hirntrust Grind Media / Amertume / Urgence Disk Records / Et Mon Cul C'Est Du Tofu? / BRK / Bruits De Fond / Ccrecordz / I Feel Good Records / Sweat Lodge]

A multiple label effort and collaboration brings forth and results in the first collaborational single-sided - sic !!! - four track 12" created by French producer Le Crabe and originally US-based but world travelling Experimental / Mutant HipHop artist Optimis GFN which we've met in person earlier this year when he did a show at Hamburg's Goldener Salon @ Hafenklang. Opening the musical journey with "Majin Buu" we see the two artists explore 808-heavy Mutant HipHop-realms evoking memories of genre greats like Dälek or Le Trolls throughout their heydays with its warped, mind-bending bassline attacks whilst "Tetsuo Headaches" feat. K.The.I??? provides a direct, yet slightly more ass kicking sequel for all Illbient headz out there. Furthermore "S.A.H.D" brings forth a sparse, more traditional HipHop-approach with a minimal, yet spine-tingling melodic sequence that would mix perfectly with Coldcut's banger named "Only Heaven" and the final cut "Onyx Heart" comes on with the intensity of your favorite horror flic, killing everyone and everything alive with its super massive sinewave bass. Excellent.
