YTAC – Barbusse EP
This is the first outing on Bomb Shop for the secret society of Paris/London producers which is YTAC. They're a bit like the masons - chances are some of your favourite electronic music figures are amongst them, though you'd never know until they mysteriously get out of parking fines or end up with free gym membership. Formed from a number of extremely active DJ's and artists on the Parisian and London bass music scene, the collective's expertise spans hip hop, dubstep, glitch, techno and UK funky.
This first nugget of rough and ready underground prowess sets out the manifesto nicely. Switchism is a searing slice of 140bpm soca-tinged techno that escalates to fever pitch, whilst Barbusse 5k brings a touch of Bladerunner to the minimal 2step vibe.
