Kurt and Drop Bass don’t need an introduction!

Drop Bass Network was amongst the first labels worldwide to put out evil and dark electronic music back when it all started!

If you don’t know Drop Bass Network – check it out. The records stood the test of time – the copycats are still crying because they can simply not top those early hardcore vinyl records. They are vicious, nasty and a threat to the lies of Christianity.

The Drop Bass crew was first to introduce Digital Hardcore in 1996 in the Mid-West of America, when they put on Atari Teenage Riot and Alec Empire shows.
So what does the godfather of hardcore think about this weird and chaotic ‚re-igniton‘ of ATR?
Has the group pussied out because they made an album for Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records and not the Beastie Boys‘ label Grand Royal?

Kurt sent us his opinion on Atari Teenage Riot’s „Is This Hyperreal?“.

It hit us like the hammer of Thor!

Kurt/Drop Bass Network says :

dude…wow! you guys hit the mark. i’m not going to say it was worth the wait…because 12 years is a long fucking time! when that blood in my eyes track came out recently i wasn’t super stoked.

i was wrong to question what atr had up it’s sleeve…this album is great.

i like this evolution…or is that revolution! cool to hear a more techno based record versus drum and bass…and all those old school rave sounds. the hyperreal title track is one of the sickest tracks i have ever heard. it’s like front 242 meets pcp/mescalinum united meets tron. i think i’m going to open dj sets with that one for a while. please say that’s a real 303 in there.

it’s cool to hear you speaking german on a record again too…adds to the intensity. and for what it’s worth one of the coolest things in rock and roll is you guys are always screaming „atari teenage riot“ in your tracks….don’t even stop that. can’t wait to see you guys live this year. rave on!“

Atari Teenage Riot new album Is This Hyperreal? out on Dim Mak

(June 7th on all DSP, June 21st physical release on Dim Mak)
