Chris Burns – 410 Paradox Underground presents…

Another new label, this one headed up by no less a personage than Ultra Nate. For the label's debut offering, they present a seven-track EP from Washington DC-resident Chris Burns.

Legends is a truly deranged dark n' druggy percussion workout with shouted (as in shouted, not spoken) aggro-queen vocals, coming in Original and even-sparser Walk Dub flavas. Shake! continues with the big dark room vibes, another strobe stomper with a nagging organ sound and big diva vox that also comes with an accompanying dub. We Get Deep is in a similar vein only sans diva, I'm Free is a more musical, soulful affair with vocals from Denise Henderson and Michelle Webb, and then finally with Hey Mick we're back to the big Vasquez/Murk-y drums.

There's not a HUGE amount of variety on offer, then, but no matter: this is music made for big dark rooms and dingy red-lit basements, and it'll work well there for sure.

Out: This week

About: Can't seem to find a website for 410 Paradox Underground, but you can follow the lovely Ultra on Twitter if you're into that kind of thing.
