With his first major EP Kick N’ Run, Don Rimini is jumping onto the mixing board with his sleeves rolled up, ready to unleash one hell of a set. Pulsating, pumping, and consistently aggressive, the five track package works a bit like being strapped to a ticking time bomb thrown into the line of fire. The grinding synths are unforgivably loud, while the massive, pounding bass bumps drop and drip as quickly as sweat atop the dancefloor.
The beats bouncing off this set are punishingly addictive, combining sweet-toothed old-school synth sounds with prickling, punching electro stings. Ebbing through screaming highs and colossal crashes back down, the compilation is one jittery trip. “Nervous Breakdown” is the highlight for me, heavy with stammering, stunted vocal glitches and glittering nineties club riffs. Then there’s the closer “Hools,” which supplies a cock-and-loaded explosion of dooming, damning electro slices. Certainly able to fit snugly within a setlist featuring MSTRKRFT and Justice, Rimini’s set shows major glimmers of promise for conquering the dancefloor.
