Win the entire JUNK back catalogue!
You lucky lucky people!
Aphasic is a stalwart of the breakcore/speedcore/whatevercore scene. He was one of the founders of the legendary Dead by Dawn nights at Brixton’s 121 Centre and released a number of tunes on the seminal Praxis label before starting his own Ambush Records with DJ Scud.
He set up his own label, JUNK, at the end of 2003 after relocating to the Netherlands. JUNK builds on the Ambush sound – ragged dancefloor killers bump up against more abstract downtempo tracks. Junk’s releases have torn up the place at Sick & Twisted and have also featured on CD or online mixes by LFO Demon, DJ Ripley and DJ Brokenyolk.
THE STORY SO FAR:
Aphasic – Yeah Yeah Yeah Whatever (Junk 01) 12”
”Two ultra fast tracks and two slower-paced tracks. Influences move from Indian drumming to old skool hardcore, from salsa to classical, from ragga to musique concrete via dub, punk and jazz.”
“To the Top” is insane everything-but-the-kitchen-sink mash up at its best. Also includes a collaboration with Bong Ra.
Sickboy – Owley Girl (JUNK02) 12”
Aphasic – We Are Junk (JUNK03) 12”
Previously reviewed here.
Patric C – VIP (Very Impossible Person) (JUNK04) 12”
This is the latest release – from Berlin-based Patric C (previously of EC8OR) and is a further shot in the arm – at 200bpm! The “take your hands of my ba-bomp ba-bomp bomp” vocal sample guarantees hip-wigging aplenty.
