d.o.k.-west coast 12 (hyperdub)

Price: $10.99


East London grime producer D.O.K has been something like Terror Danjah's evil twin since the early 2000s, when Terror and D.O.K. shared many EPs and production credits together on key early grime label Aftershock. More recently, they worked together on 'Pro Plus' from Terror's recent Undeniable album, and D.O.K.'s Golden Axe EP was the inaugural release last summer on Terror's own Hardrive imprint. These tracks for his debut solo Hyperdub EP are sleazily deranged grime; West Coast, which features extra input from Terror Danjah, has a half-time, low-riding head-nod feel that references classic G-Funk 'funky worm' style lead synth, and manages to sound simultaneously melodic and like a swarm of angry wasps. He lays this basic template over a complex stop-start detailed eight bar style pattern that reminds of the jagged edges of early computer game music, but with the strange swing and double-time fills of a prime Timbaland record
