Album Review: Neil Landstrumm - 'Bambaataa Eats His Breakfast'

7 / 10 A funny thing about Neil Landstrumm’s music: it used to get filed, in genre-crazed dance shops at any rate, under ‘wonky’, which referred to off-kilter, glitchy techno producers largely listened to by those entrenched in the scene. A few years on, the Scotsman has kept his ears open to the roughest dubstep and neo-rave tackle, fed it into his machines, and now he’s on the fringes of the new wonky, which has nothing to do with the other one. Wild! Anyway, this half-hour of chiptune-electro glee, shimmering dub melody and breastplate-shattering low end is both an ideal introduction to Landstrumm’s killer dancefloor skills, and a companion piece to last year’s ‘Lord For £39’ album.
