Midfield General – Bass Mechanic

...should satisfy any 5am dance floor urgings

Skint Records founder Damian Harris returns as Midfield General with his first album in eight years.

Despite spending some of the intervening years collaborating with the likes of Ed Banger and Justice, this first limited edition single is firmly entrenched in the big beat techno that defined all Skint releases during the mid-nineties. It has dark and dirty bass lines, glitchy electronics and no-nonsense beats that should satisfy any 5am dance floor urgings. The fact it makes little concession to any of dance music’s current trends isn’t necessarily a bad thing but remaining rooted in the past is largely uninspiring.
