(ENDE251) Hyperdriver - Born in '59

Hyperdriver's new EP "Born In '59" sees the UK breakcore pioneer mocking his age and vintage as only he could do best, after being rejected by promoters across the UK and Europe for lineup additions claiming he's "too old" despite being only a few years younger than other pioneers like Christoph Fringeli.

The result is 4 tracks of witty response in live produced, freeform recorded hardware modulated breakcore. Wearing all the usual influences of both a breakcore producer and electronic music producer of his years.

Title jokes about arthritis and dad dancing aside. Hyperdriver's usual brand of old school, noise laden, break smashing continues to obliterate most producers half his age....or should that be a quarter of his age.

"Arthritis" starts with a rolling breakbeat slid around over a prog style synth before jamming the structure of the track like it's stuck in a vice.
Hyperdriver just turns on the machines and let's his mind go nuts. Form and function, structure and coherence are abandoned in favour of prog synth and modulations wrapped around brutal kickdrums and distorted breaks with no thought for what the finished recording might end up being.

"Rad Dad Dance" definitely lives up to it's name with more jarring beats and random shouts that only your Dad could actually dance to. It's not til the amens come in that the early breakcore influence really takes over.
Something of a centrepiece to the EP. It does evoke memories of D-Trash, one of the labels that has been a long time home for Hyperdriver since the 1990s.

"There Was A Time" rounds off the EP with a plodding bassline and frenetic modulation over rolling quick cut breakbeats and two step out of tempo.
