IMS & Joey Menza

The Wake

Starch Records
Ever-dependable production team Ill Move Sporadic follow up that canny single with Sleaford Mods by hooking up with lyricist Joey Menza for this first drop from forthcoming full-length 'Drug Corpse 2'. The beat here is noisy and satisfyingly heavy as fuck ā€” thankfully, no cleanliness gets looped over it, only more filth and wreckage, a simmering arc of feedback and spun-out inhuman vocals, with a dubbed horn-lick sinking you deeper in the quagmire. Menza combines literary and mythical references to great effect ā€” in other words, I have no fucking idea WHAT he's on about, but my god you can feel the CONVICTION radiate through your speaker-cone. Superb.
