01. Mean Teeth – Breaking Point [5:05]
02. Mean Teeth – Nine Lives [7:29]
‘Breaking Point’ is a runaway detonation which submerges you in the deep end from its very first sixteen bars, grabbing you unaware and never taking its hold off your aural nerves throughout its chaos. The track grows more and more drivingly aggressive as it explodes into action, pushing through its destruction with each pounding set of drums and crackling swatches of LFO. Growingly beneath the mix, the bassline pushes through with bite after bite of scuttling percussion, before building up into an almighty monster which then continually switches in its formation. This keeps the track interesting and it’s why Mean Teeth have proven to be the masters of their craft.
On the reverse, you’re drawn into ‘Nine Lives’, a record which scratches with its claws and goes for the vital points with every slab of heavyweight bass stabs. Its intro is moodier than its forerunners and it creates more of a creeping atmosphere, one which suddenly drops and drags you down into its murky world. Both tracks provide yet more reasons why Mean Teeth are so revered; however that’s not just within neurofunk but the wider scene. Under the provision of veterans like Optiv, they’re looking to expand their dominion like never before.
