Mampi Swift rounds up the d&b soldiers for this hardline EP. Friction’s title track is full of mechanic chirps and growling techno bass, while newcomers Warped Science and Philly’s Sine strike back with horrorcore rollers. The real show-stopper is Fresh’s more lighthearted “Sausage Dog,” a bass-driven stomper along the lines of “Bodyrock” or “Temple of Doom.”
