Juan Atkins’ Metroplex are on quite the reissues hype at the moment. Following re-releases of classic material from Model 500 and The Vision (Robert Hood) we now get a new pressing of Black Noise’s Nature Of The Beast EP. Originally cut in 1997, Nature Of The Beast sees the duo of Mike Grant and Baby Pop deliver two long-form interpretations of the same track. The ‘Black Noise Mix’ of ‘Nature Of The Beast’ takes a classic minimal Detroit groove and gives it some real propulsion with the addition of a quicksilver bassline. The overall effect is one of perpetual motion, and the speedy rhythm compels you to dance. On the flipside Mike Grant gives his mix some real oomph by distorting the synths and hi-hats.
