Aaron Funk delivers once again for Planet Mu. For those who enjoyed "Higgins Ultra Low Track Glue Funk Hits 1972-2006" - this is the stylistic follow-up - full-on punk-rave jungle breaks with lots and lots of pop attitude in 7/8 (and 5/4). As well as the classic single: "Einstein-Rosen Bridge" with its funk guitar, sci-fi vocals and salsa trumpets, the album is also choc-full (ho) of other delights. Such as the shouty post-punk vocal hooks of "Abomination Street" whose melody is based on the TV theme of a well known & long-running Manchester soap opera, or Too Young - a glitch-hop reworking of the Motley Crue hit. "Hand Throw" - in which a gruff (Belgian) MC shouts out to "Antwerp massive"... or "Epidermis" in which another more tremulous post-punk chanteuse pairs up with spooky drexciyan chords, titanium breaks and a buzzing reese bass. The album concludes with Aaron's most daring deconstruction of the amen break yet - "Herbie Goes Ballistic" with a guest performance from the little VW beetle who cared.
