Billain – Blockfield



Label: Bad Taste Recordings

Score: 7/10

Bosnia’s premier purveyor of all things neuro and funky, Billain returns once more to the fold at Blokhe4d’s Bad Taste Recordings, his last appearance being the absurdly heavy ‘Batbots’, for more futuristic hard noise on his latest musical offering, ‘Blockfield’.    As with practically all of Billain’s previous output what you get is a real face melting work out of hard as fuck snares, synths and razor sharp edits. Blockfield is a techy roller drawn from the deep dark recesses of Billain’s brain. It certainly ticks all the neuro boxes and its machine like chord work definitely adds that touch of funk to it. Utter screw face business.    The flipside however, ‘Boogie’, is the real treat on this 12 for me. A whirling dervish of more lightening fast edits and hardcore rave synths, ‘Boogie‘ is a little bit more playful that ‘Blockfield’ but no less aggressive in its approach and tone, as it builds to a crunching drop of blistering synths, disgusting bass lines and war march drum programming. Absolutely hench.    Two tunes that grab you by the scruff of the nexk and don’t really let you go, ‘Blockfield‘ and ‘Boogie‘ are two more impressive additions to a growing catalogue of tunes from the man. Neurofunk with no hold barred, Billain has brought more filth than rolling about in the mud.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
