There must be something in the air in Winnipeg. After Venetian Snares and Fanny, Cakebuilder is another first-class breakcore and hardcore act to pop out of this town's snow. Active since 1999 under various monikers and as a composer for move soundtracks, Jeremy Pillipow (Cakebuilder) finally sees his first release sees the light of the day with “Decks n' Demons”, a hard hitting, twisted and highly toxic debut four tracker.
However decaying and weak-looking the zombie on this record's artwork might be, Cakebuilder's tracks sound surprisingly fresh and definitely powerful. Tapping from influences ranging from drum'n'bass, rave, breakcore, gabber and metal, Jeremy Pillipow has here combined to best of all worlds to create an impressive debut record. Assimilating infectious rave synth to his juggernaut beats, and sparse screams to his staccato rhythms, he signs here a very compact and percussive record which is guaranteed to hack its way to legions of DJ decks.
Not just another mashup of random beats and samples, “Decks n' Demons” is a strongly produced, coherent and passionate record. Dark, punching and fresh: the perfect ghetto tunes for the discerning zombie.
