You know what techno needs more of? Blasphemy and grim fucking metal. Think of Trouble & Bass‘ Deathface as the prophet of evil beats. Luciferian prodigy Johnny Love (formerly performing under the name Guns’n’Bombs) blends raw, jagged dubstep with shrieking hardcore vocals to create a vortex of fury that makes glowsticks boil and neon turn black. Say a prayer for PLUR; this is rave to dance yourself to death with.
