MIndbomber / Mistral

Here’s another strong double-header from Melbourne’s Hiddenform imprint that follows acclaimed releases by Chris Cargo & Paco Buggin and Daniel Taylor. Now from St. Petersburg, Russia the label presents a name to certainly watch for in ’09. ‘Mindbomber’ is a terrific house cut that pairs dubbed out beats with techno-tinged melodies to create the modern day jackin’ sound. The addition of a driving synth-line only helps this swing, shake ‘n’ rattle in all the right places over a dirty as hell bassline. While ‘Mistral’ introduces electric guitar riffs to make a palatable offering in the vein of Dirty South, Steve Angello et al.
