The styles don't come more modern than this, as White Asega marks up its fourth release in a continuing trans-Atlantic operation between London and New York. On this occasion Kodiak leads the charge on the A side with a bashy twist on electro-techno heavy on the synths but with the whiplash drums taking centre stage. Bambounou's remix comes off decidedly conservative by comparison, opting for a reduced techno cycle in contrast to all the rowdiness. Jack Dixon meanwhile drops his own fiery number in the shape of "New Curtains", triggering rapid fire samples with a Latin flavour and keeping the beat snappy. Troy Gunner then duly reworks the track into a moody stepper for the crafty heads out there.
