DJ? Acucrack

Crack Nation, 2007

Possibly the darkest Acucrack release yet, this newest collection (released at the same time as its sister Acumen Nation album) tears through drum and bass maelstroms and eerie atmospherics with aplomb. Given the tile, an emphasis on horror is expected, and these electronic stalwarts deliver! HUMANOIDS FROM THE DEEP is also perhaps the closest DJ? Acucrack has ever come to sounding like Acumen Nation while still maintaining a distinct identity as far more than a side project. A solid listen from start to finish, and absolutely recommended to all Acucrack/Acumen fans.
