Organ GrinderCreative Combustion
By Edward Blake
LP of ultra tough street techno on Charlie Hall's Pro-jex label, aping the jack-attack sound of Chicago's DJ Rush in an uncompromising albeit plagiarised speaker assault. Geared strictly towards club application, Corey Holloway's productions make all the right moves to get you to workout heaven and no-where in between. The percussion is punchy and super-bright throughout, while the tone lurks unsettlingly between Rush, Green Velvet and Robert Armani. However, despite numerous playful interludes to accompany the functional cuts, the package doesn't contain quite enough of its own twist warrant the title.
