Ninja Drive-By EP - DJ Spider (Rekids)

Title: Ninja Drive-By EP
Artist: DJ Spider
Label: Rekids
Cat Number: REKIDS091
Genre: Techno

A1: Dirt Nap
B1: Planetary DisFunction

DJ Spider’s sound lies somewhere inbetween the political radicalism of the best post-punk, driving minimalism and a pervasive, funky ambience. There’s a strong dose of darkness as well. Easy listening this is not so if you’re coming up on the little fellas when one of his tracks comes on, and of the squeamish variety, best retire to more convivial surroundings. There’s a claustrophobic quality to this music, and the jungle isn’t too far away either, add to that a sample-heavy sense of drama and you have Spider in a nutshell. Great stuff.
