"Run War" CD
Genres: breakcore, hardcore techno
May 2 - 8 2005
Recognized breakcore personality Enduser already has a sizable
discography under his belt (including a couple of 12"s on Ad
Noiseam), but this Run War compilation aims to explore some of
his unreleased material, circa 2000-2004. It is a strong
collection of tracks, up to par with his recent material, that fits in
well alongside other Ad Noiseam and Zod acts.
The sounds really run the gamut on this disc, from beaten-up rap
("Diggin Graves," "Blastin Mothafuckas") to
raggacore ("Dubplate #12," "Bounty Drilla") to a
powerful Bjork remix ("Under My Bed").
Particularly inspired moments include "Dissin Monks," which
juxtaposes chanting monks with vicious beats and aggressive rap lines,
as well as the touchingly beautiful, female-voiced "Choppin
Lambs." The vicious beats and vocals of "Blastin
Mothafuckas," meanwhile, make it an explosive slab of breakcore-rap;
it is likely the most aggressive track on here - though the romping
"War on War" is a close second.
Run War is a fine record that should satiate any breakcore
or hardcore techno addict. As an introduction to Enduser
or an addition to an already established collection, this fits the bill
