This eerie tune is guaranteed to rock Halloween floors, says Danny Slade

Formally known as My Digital Enemy, MDE have reinvented themselves of late, relaunching one of their labels (they own two: Zulu and Vudu) and working on their sound to make it chunkier.

So this release on the recently relaunched Vudu has a lot to live up to, and I'm happy to report that they deliver the goods with ease. It's already been road-tested by a handful of tastemakers, and the reports back are glowing with praise. It starts with a deep bass tone and a cowbell, then comes in with slicing drums that really cut a swathe. The bassline is distorted, there are messed-up vocal chops and an almost sinister lead synth line, and it's all quite dark and underground, which works for me and will no doubt work for a lot of other DJs and dancers. 

With Halloween around the corner, the release of this track is timed nicely: by the time we hit All Hallow's Eve I suspect quite a few DJs will be spinning this eerie tune with great results. It's in no way a novelty record, though, and packs a hefty punch through your speakers. I myself am looking forward to giving it a good hammering!
