[Review] Arrebite Vs. LXC feat. Diamondog – Dubcore Vol. 8

The first thing that struck me about this record is the aggressive Diamondog vocal and how, even though I honestly can’t make out the words of most of it, the cadence and ferocity of it would have a really hyping effect on a crowd. Not a centerpiece, but a great bit for somewhere near the beginning of a set. The beats reminded me heavily of Enduser’s ‘Caustic Damage EP’, and that’s certainly a good thing. Simple but punishing. Overall, a great job integrating the vocal over a strong beat that allows it room to breathe.

LXC turns in a nice head-nodder using only a few snippets of the vocal, tons of delay and some serious BASS*. I see this version mixing well with some of the more frantic amen workouts in your crate and, on it’s own, taking the energy down a notch while still nailing people to the floor.

*Serious bass from a 7″? Believe it. This is mastered as loud as any 33 cut 12″ you’d care to put it up against.

You can grab this one straight from the label or various overseas shops.
