If that sounds like awfully heady stuff—"Inspiration comes from years wrestling with Zionism, victimhood and vengeance," they add—the music tells you, instantly, that this isn't empty hand-waving. Somewhere between Kassem Mosse's dejected shuffle and the quicksilver sonics of Newworldaquarium's "Trespassers," this is as brooding and as burnished as slow, deep techno gets. It's the color of an old penny; if it had a flavor, it would taste like one too. Both tracks are variations on a theme, with a single, three-note bassline trudging doggedly through the murk; the same chords and arpeggios reappearing in the muddy midrange, taking shape as though assembling themselves out of the muck itself.
The A-side is nearly 16 minutes long, and the B-side over seven. You don't need a press release to tell you that this is as "live" as electronic music gets; there's nothing programmatic about the way their lines morph and tangle. At times it recalls Cobblestone Jazz, if their cobblestones were set in molasses; you can also hear something of Donato Dozzy's organic phrasing here, and it's no surprise to learn that Juju & Jordash are working with Move D on a collaborative project, Magic Mountain High. Both tunes, in the hands of a good DJ, are absolutely appropriate for the club, but they're just as rewarding heard at home, preferably loud and on extended repeat.
