onto furnace-like dancefloors
t his month and we guarantee that you'll hear this rush of thumping genius, if you haven't had it laser-written onto your cranium already. Toronto club kid Hatiras has concocted precisely the kind of hyper-dumb, spasmodic beat monster that keeps house music the essential sonic flavour for discerning rug-cutters everywhere, while desperate beat-fads like UK garage blow up and die.
