Altered Natives


With The Bitch, Altered Natives take you on a sinuous crawl through jungles of shady acid fronds whilst sinister wee beasties chuckle and snarl from the darkness around you. Simultaneously creepy and goofy this is mid tempo acid house for a generation raised on London pirates, four to the floor thudding kick bitten at by shuffling hats stolen from Funky, whilst those indistinct whirrs and cackles flicker in and out of the mix like rogue signals on your radio dial. Acid music never really goes away but its always great to hear the template stretching, warping and snapping itself into subtly different new flavours. Worth checking.
