Vocal-laced house to twist heads.
While the whistling synth melody and sustained organ brighten "Belter"'s midrange, those elements percolate in an uneasy industrial atmosphere of railyard creaks and scrapes, a tension that enhances Khoaripe's calm authority. (The breakbeats give this good-versus-evil stand-off another satisfying kick.) Other DJs might tip to the dark side with Joy O's "Belly Mix," which adds a nervy bassline, chilly ambience and scribbling digital noise. The effect verges on the psychedelic. Segments of Khoaripe's utterings are chopped into subordinate loops, a chittering presence that sounds something like the devil on your shoulder. For DJs who know their way around Ableton or a CDJ, the acapella brings another opportunity to twist heads.
