The second Addison Groove release finally comes almost exactly an entire year after "Footcrab," one of 2010's biggest crossover smashes. The man otherwise known as Headhunter's second Swamp 81 release digs deeper into his obsession with vintage electro, all but doing away with the footwork references. "Work It" is a fiery apocalypse of rancid squelch and demonic vocals—the sound of the world ending one destroyed rave at a time (where the vocal sample begins to sound more like the command of a sadistic slave driver than a call to dance). With its toy 808 rimshots ringing out into a vast, foreboding abyss, it's the reverb that really makes the track, as sounds stretch out and define the gaping chasm.
Easing up on the fallout vibes, "Sexual" is lighter on its feet, soothing keyboard tones feeling out its jazzy progression. While its stabbing drums and clipped vocals are bound to garner comparisons to "Footcrab," the rolling twitch is more sped-up Miami Bass than anything else. While these tracks do date back to around the same time as "Footcrab," the much-delayed release shows the producer who arguably brought juke to the forefront of bass music already moving on.
