Despite the world going down the drain, we keep things moving with another crushing ten track LP from Mutant Joe.
Cooked up in 4 days, ‘vagrant’ continues the merge between the various strains of the contemporary underground, spanning jungle, Memphis trap, Baile funk and techno with guests on the mic including our own and Doomshop's Apoc Krysis, YVNCC, TrippJones and new recruit DirtBagMarley outta NYC.
This is truly outstanding work from Jack Roland - superb production, frantic percussions and engaging atmospheres. Sounds recorded under the shadow of a deadly industrial surge. But it is not simply a 'dark, atmospheric' album - its strength is in the pulsing relentlessness of its rhythms and hooks. Stéfan Németh
