Day 19: Unknown Artist – Rentokil (JD Twitch Edit)

JD Twitch, also one half of the esteemed Optimo, digs deep into his EBM collection to resurrect and reshape an old burner. After being disillusioned by a stream of demos where artists misleadingly labeled their “generic funk-less mulsh” with the EBM tag, JD Twitch dug out a classic to “cleanse my ears”, with “funk encoded deep into its sequences.”

Here we have over six minutes of no-nonsense 4/4 synth-based aggression. With unapologetic emphasis on the kick drum and little variance from the arpeggiated riff, JD Twitch has delivered a solid instrumental edit for listeners who like to venture into the more industrial realms of dance music.
