Djinn 'Dark Reference' EP (Foundation X)
Turning heads and screwing up faces as she goes, FDX’s Mancunian powerhouse Djinn is making waves with her uncompromising jungle arias. There are four knotty, intricate, sledgehammer-tough slices here, on her first full EP for Skitty’s label. ‘Nine Grounds’ is a relentless hornets’ nest of fury, while the clean, spacious lines of ‘Destructive Consequence’ are reminiscent of ‘Valley Of The Shadows’. The title track, meanwhile, is a meditative, deep-end exploration coated in brooding layers of mentasms.
