One of the new faces of filth is Candyland. In the past they’ve released EPs off labels like Big Fish, Braslive, Heavy Artillery Recordings and now join Reid Speed’s Play Me Crew. With a name like Candyland you may think their basslines may be too soft, but these are about as sweet as Vlade Divac’s game 6 jersey sweat. Prelude called “Classicalstep” has a captivating start. The piano is so on point and blends perfectly with with the growls and reverse percussion. I just dig the beauty that descends in to the nastiness of their wobbles.
Frieght is similar because it also has a nice Piano, but what really works in the beginning is the mysterious vocal that lays softly in the back. The musical theory of these producers is out of this world, and it sounds like something from an orchestra. Gnarly basslines and the vocal make this release a easy buy.
