Doomsday Ravebot EP by DJ Burrito Boy
DJ Burrito Boy delivers four warehouse-ready house tracks, with Sabacan Records' Guchon on remix duties.
"Doomsday!" opens up the EP with cascading rave stabs atop tight 909 drums, chopped-up vocals murmuring in the background, creating a euphoric feel harkening back to warehouse party days. "Eyes In The Sky" slowly descends into a flurry of dancefloor mania through whirling breakbeats and bouncing organ bass before "Hot Pink Stinger Missile" comes in hot with tough drums, serpentine acid, and distorted dubbed-out hits. "RAVEBOT 3000" is up next, a house track with a distinct futuristic edge. Its quirky vocal samples and infectious bassline also get a remix from Japan's Guchon. The Sabacan Records boss turns the track into a peak-time driver, rounding off a floor-filling offering with flair.
The thematic inspiration comes from the feeling that we are living at a crossroads in history. In the 90s, rave music was defined by an ecstatic and hopeful embrace of futurism. Decades later, we've had dizzying technological advances, but discovered new miseries that they've wrought on us.
