Arriving on blood red clear vinyl, Funkineven delivers two more potent examples of his "fuck what everyone else is doing" approach. Lead cut "Cha" starts in a manner reminiscent of D'Marc Cantu's M>O>S Deep gem "How Are We Doing" but you always know it's gonna curve off into some weird place, which the track duly does, rolling out a crack unit of killer jacking drums and deviant bass splurges that are clearly aimed at testing the limits of a club system. On the flip "Dracula" comes from the same bloodline as the infamous Funkinevil collaboration with that MF Kyle Hall, with rough drums hits getting attacked from all angles by the motherlode of all jagged acid. Yet another essential plate from the Apron studios!
