Ahead of his new album Belief System, Special Request knocks out a surprise deadly 12" of his mutated electro and techno, backed with an icing on the cake remix from Peder Mannerfelt!
Perhaps the most techno thing he has put his name to, Curtain Twitcher rips up the rule book of classic acid and Beltram style mentasm techno across four originals and its two remixes. The whole thing sounds like an AFX, Joey Beltram and The Bug live set, running the place deep into the red with a swinging jaw intensity.
Throughout the BPM jumps from Hi-NRG gabba to darkside techno with a surefire confident swagger that can only come from someone well educated within this game. On the remix tip, Peder Mannerfelt's reworking comes out on top, his mix of breakbeats and noise-centric shots ring strong through the ghetto with an apocalyptic rhythmic dance.
