The second outing from BTG follows, in tradition, their 2 originals and 2 remixes format. This time round TOYC creates a slower paced dance floor obliterator titled 'Kicks' sounding like a wonky laser gun trapped inside a broken 808 landing somewhere between broken techno and bass. On the remix Project Mooncircle and 20/20 LDN affiliated Deft deconstructs and reconstructs TOYC's track into a maximalist beast fusing the current sounds of 160 BPM 170 BPM and halftime DnB with the technical precision of Amon Tobin. Up next the bootyshaking stormer they call Itoa, known for releases on Bad Taste and being featured in storming 160/170bpm sets by DJs and tastemakers sush as Om Unit and Sam Binga. 'Snake Pass' is a classic Itoa Track, playful bouncing subs and flickering percussion and shards of vocal, landing somewhere between footwork and booty bass. BTG cofounder Etch sets the pace with his remix of Snake Pass, coming through with a schizophrenic beats influenced sub heavy stepper that slowly evolves into a breakbeat onslaught.
