- Maurice Fulton is responsible for some of the zaniest electronic dance music around (the guy's married to Mu forchristsakes), but what makes him so on point in his Syclops guise is that he manages to balance his skewed sensibilities with damn good grooves. 'Where's Jason's K' is definitely the most blunt Syclops release so far because it's basically an inspired and stupidly addictive bassline for most of the track's six and a bit minutes. In the middle there's a crescendo of floaty effects, weird shit and an electronic organ all reminiscent of ‘70s funk wigouts, but 'K' is all about wilfully being hammered by bassline.
Fulton indulges himself more on 'Monkey Puss' and the result is, inevitably, unhinged. 'Puss' is more raw than 'K', opening with what sounds like a feral ZX Spectrum being tortured. The beats are a bit minimal, a bit acid house, a bit early ‘90s house and a bit of something else that's rotten, bad and shouldn't be put on record. The back end does sound similar to previous single 'Mom, The Video Broke' but instead of yelps at the end of every fourth bar it sounds like he's stabbing his equipment to death and recording it.
This is one of the freshest records to come out this year so far. A Syclops album is due out soon but as 'Monkey Puss' won't be on it you should definitely check this.
