After a slew of cassette released long players, appearances on both Blunted Breaks Vol.1 & Rupture s recent Planet s series (alongside Dead Man s Chest), Thugwidow has quickly gained an underground cult following amongst leftfield junglists digging through the fringes of electronica... Hard Rave Aesthetic (Thugwidow s debut solo outing on wax) charges in with all the ferocity the title track suggests; a crescendo of swirling rave stabs giving way to a torrent of rolling drum & bass pressure that hits the dance like dynamite. 'A Cluster Of Angry Repeating Thoughts moves into more sombre, atmospheric territory; painterly break edits perform rhythm gymnastics through murky claustrophobic chords, setting the tone for a more restrained & introspective journey on the flip-side.
