Ill Blu - Clapper [12'']

Ill Blu return to Hyperdub for their second single with 'Clapper', which contrasts deceptively swinging claps and funky but martial drums with crazy pitched up and down synth stabs and shrieks that sound like psychotically angry birds. It's an incredibly infectious and energising club banger that manages to retain its swagger without losing its sense of humour. On the flip, West Chicago's juke and footwork veteran Traxman takes the bpm up to 160 with his energetic mix, which takes the mood darker, switching from 4 / 4 kicks to 808 electro claps, with jittery punched-in stabs giving the track a nervous energy.
