Macadam invite London-based newcomer George Kamm to their ever-tangled fray with four of the straight-up strangest edits you'll hear in a long time. Digging deep into the furthest, weirdest corners of synth pop each cut has a sectioning order against it; "Track 1" is a clanging, jittering stamp of a Japanese track that flips dynamically almost operatically, "Track 2" is the polar opposite as we're stripped back to creeped out Eastern European loopiness over a Kraftwerkian design. "Durst & Hunger" takes us deeper into the 80s with big guitars, trippy vocal textures and a bassline angular and juicy enough to make Black Strobe blush. Finally "La Spensa" rolls on a Hardcastle-style breakbeat with perfectly positioned vocal shots and oddball samples. Debuts don't come much fresher.
