PROMETHEUS BURNING: Nboyde Rarepi CD Hive Records
Here we have PB’s interim filler whilst working on their studio follow up to 2006’s rather popular ‘Beyond Repair’.
Predominantly, this is a remix album, apart from opener (the unreleased ‘Battery Drain’), and with this, PB are further driving it home just what a valuable commodity they are to the scene (Its not often you get a remix album out straight after your debut).
There are some artists of decent stature remixing on here from the likes of Iszoloscope, Scrap.edx and Fanny, to some lesser heard of acts and all put in a credible effort at breaking, stripping and rebuilding PB’s abrasive sound.
PB for me are one of those acts you stick on before going out. Their visceral incendiary distorted beats are pretty much a sure fire detonator for kicking off your night. ‘Nboyde Rarepi’ surprisingly however, seems tamed down and leashed in comparison and certainly isn’t the kick in the teeth I expected.
Lets just say it’s one of those interesting stocking fillers with enough high moments to keep the odd DJ happy and those people out there who seem to gorge on as many different versions they can get of a track as is humanly possible.
