Pakzad - SlaveLABEL: Infiltrate
Media Condition: Mint
Sleeve Condition: Mint
REPRESS ALERT: Hitting its stride under the umbrella of Burnski's Constant Sound label, Infiltrate serves up round two from lesser-known talent Pakzad. The electro vibes are dark and deadly on this record, leading in with the murky, dubbed out delights of "Slave" before swerving into the crisp machine funk workout "Rebelion." The Infiltrate remix of "Tension" opens up the B-side with some sinister synth pulses strafing across the low mids and a constant unease courtesy of the sustained strings, contrasting the more playful programming of Pakzad's original. This is classy, hyper modern electro that taps into the current wave of the genre perfectly.
