Hardcore is Back Sequel Album by 5ifty$ix K Promises Breakcore Footwork on the Ruthless and Evil Tip of Electronic Music. Title’s a bit wordy.
So, you can go here to get a copy of this one. Or, listen to the trax below..
A 12-track EP with elements of footwork/juke, jungle/dnb, and it dips pretty heavily in the breakcore department. No, not that scatterfuck nonsense that breakcore unfortunately dove into for about 7 years, but the fun and weird and meticulous kind of breakcore – back when it was trying hard to actually be forward-thinking. The ‘golden era,’ that very few people know about. Doesn’t matter, really; the point is, this is a decent album, and you should definitely check it out. Unless you hate bass music. In which case, I’m curious as to why you’re clicking around on a site called ‘Bassadelic.’ That doesn’t really make a lot of sense, I reckon..
Here’s a write-up I did for the album on the label website, Dynasty Shit:
Well, the sequel is finally here. I’m really happy with how this one turned out. An unhealthy mixture of blood, sweat, and evil; all doused with meticulously chopped up beats and basslines. ‘Ruthless,’ is probably my favorite track on this one, so check that one out if you like.
I sincerely hope this one hurts everybody’s ears in the most pleasurable way imaginable. I feel like I’ve really figured out how to make some of the weird sounds that are floating around in my lunatic head. Though, naming tracks is still kind of a wonky procedure, to me. Ah well.
Hope everyone digs the music, and I hope it gets a few fine folks out there to say, “Huh, this toxic mixture of footwork and breakcore isn’t as bad as I thought…” Or, at very least, maybe the album will just make you feel sort of evil for about half an hour.
Planning to do a lot more in the ‘Hardcore is Back,’ series, unless all of music suddenly flips a switch and converts itself into breakcore footwork, in which case, I’ll have to start making country-trance out of sheer panic. I hope that doesn’t happen. Country-trance sounds really awful.
