Lord Axel brings it down with his “Spike” EP, offering the next step to the sound of the shadows he has been renowned for.
The title track’s subtle chords and frantic clap edits come together over an almost acidic bassline, leaving a hypnotic percussive stab to occupy the rest of the space. On “Skid” we are treated to a more subliminal approach with a rubber-band bass taking the lead, while cavernous effects lead us smoothly to the menacing breakdown, offering a breather before the locomotive groove gets going once again.
