    Hellfish & Producer - Constant Mutation (Mixed)

    Deriving as they do from a place where rave culture, Lenny Dee, hip-hop, jungle and hardcore techno all collide in one vast car crash, Hellfish & Producer often have a difficult time getting taken seriously by elitist cultural arbiters of popular taste. And indeed, their music is filled with enough sci-fi/kung-fu/just plain silly samples to put off po-faced leftfield purists. But if you really want something new, something with attitude pouring from

    Typically unique fare from ยต-ziq's Planet Mu label, Hellfish & Producer have turned out an album of astonishingly hard techno. In fact, with few tracks clocking in at less than 210bpm, this is closer to the industrial assault of gabba, with hip-hop breaks, and snatches of mangled dialogue scratched in to exhilarating effect. Sure beats another Naff Del Mar comp.
