The barbed Bootsy-style falsetto narrative comes from VonStroke's close friend Barry Drift - who you may recognise from Urban Animal's "Sugar & Cinnamon" - and his sermon is complemented by an obese acid groove that thunders unrelentingly beneath. Fluctuating analogue funk, it taps into the deepest tech DNA with a lava-like flow. Instantly infectious (like all the best acid tracks) the groove carries so much weight weve included a dub version, too.
On the flip, "Eye I Eye" is equally heavy and twice as twisted. A simple vocal shot is mangled, wrangled, and tangled in the way only Claude knows how. Warped and wonderful, the vocal and processed percussion rise and excite with a strong sense of dirtybird insanity before plunging into juicy tech-funk groove. Mischievously jacking with a robust bass/kick play-off, more processed vocal shots enter the fray along with eerie risers that ghost up and down the scale with a fun sense of unpredictability.
A finer insight into the dark and devious mind of the dirtybird bossman you will not find. The question is: did his hard pre-fame Cali slog create this twisted mindset... Or was it already in place before he got there?
