The Luxury Tax / Mad E.P.
Genres: electronica, IDM, hardcore techno
July 25 - 31 2005
If you're going to name a track "90 lb girlfriend" you
better have the chops to back it up. The Luxury Tax
does. Their side of this split 7" is dark, beat-driven IDM;
not much in the way of melody, but the killer predatory rhythms make
up for that quite nicely. Mad EP's "Grenadine (Sleipnir
Ridaz Mix)" introduces some samplage into the mix, making for a
dark, deep pit of electronica mayhem - it isn't too brutal, but the
hardcore tag is not far-fetched. I like what I hear from these
two thus far; both have distinct styles and could be come forces on
the scene in a short while. I'd like to see what else they have
up their sleeves.
