At a blazing 140 BPM, "Fresh Jive" is far from polite, though it's more gleeful than aggressive. The foundation is made of slowed-down drum & bass, with a time-stretched breakbeat tumbling at its centre. Bjarki sends it over the edge with an ecstatic organ riff—half hardcore, half classic house. It ties together several different threads of rave music, but in the end, it sounds like an amalgam of everything Bjarki did on albums like Lefhanded Fuqs and Б.
On "Genat 8," Bjarki plays with staccato drum samples like a proto-jungle track, this time laid on top of a tough-as-nails, 135-BPM kick drum. It's not quite as exciting as "Fresh Jive," but it's no less trippy, frantic scribbling using the fundamentals of techno. If we've learned anything about Bjarki this year, it's that he rarely colours inside the lines.
