A - True Force.
B1 - Dredd Tune.
B2 - Pipes Of Doom.
Coming straight from the darkside, the Headwound Recordings label presents it's latest slab of twisted, dark, junglistic hardcore on wax with Manaia Toa's 'True Force / Dredd Tune / Pipes Of Doom' EP dropping now to infect your sound-systems with filthy beats and bass.
First up we are launched headfirst into the pitch blackness of 'True Force', a darkside sample-fest which captures snippets of 1992-1993 hardcore/jungle classics and menace filled 'Taxi Driver' dialogue set to an avalanche of tearing breaks, sinister bass drones and twisted rave stabs, creating a veritable tour de force of second hand sounds and modern production styles.
The 'Dredd Tune' up next follows a similar format to it's predecessor, this time utilising elements of Stallone's sketchy rendition of iconic, 2000AD anti-hero Judge Dredd and welding it onto a heavyweight, Force Inc. style amen break and monstrous growing bass snarls.
We are then taken to the EP's conclusion by the 'Pipes Of Doom', a manic combination of South American panpipes, downtempo hip-hop, rapid-fire machine gun breaks and terror stabs peppered with rave MC chatter and choice 'Evil Dead' clips.
The 'True Force / Dredd Tune / Pipes Of Doom' proves itself to be a tearing selection of 1993/1994 styled breakbeat hardcore and jungle underpinned by a D.I.Y. punk, cut & paste aesthetic which will be a surefire hit with anyone who loves their music hard-hitting and sampleadelic.
