DJ /rupture serves up a brutal sonic counterstrike against the 2004 re-election of George Bush
DJ /rupture came up with a swiftly executed and devastatingly effective musical counterstrike against the re-election of the world's least favourite leader in 2004. Previously hosted on Musicalbear, the mix combines more commercial US productions (opening with Baby Boy and finding room for Terror Squad's anthemic Lean Back) with the usual /rupture mash-up of breakcore, gabba, jungle and general intense, nose-bleeding noise. As a gesture to US Army interrogation techniques, someone really ought to shut George Bush in a steel container and play this to him at full volume until his head explodes or he experiences a sudden conversion to grime and breakcore. A crazed scream interrupts the most laid-back, downtempo part of the mix: don't relax or the Republicans might get away with even more than they already have.

The breakbeats are interspersed with evocative classics (like the Honeydrippers Impeach The President) and snatches of lyrics – 'I'm not your typical American' intones one MC, just before the music breaks down into distortion and frantic hardcore. Perhaps the most heartening thing for the UK listener is the number of British productions and MCs involved in the mix. Highlights from the UK side of the pond include the Bizzle's Forward Riddim (someone should bring the arms house to George Bush's mum's house), Lady Sovereign doing her excellent 'Ch Ching' thing and the crazy Deathsucker release Murder Dem which twists a dancehall version of Israelites into manic ragga jungle. Jamaican sounds are well represented with /rupture's own Sister Nancy collaboration Little More Oil coming through strongly, and there's also room for the all-time reggae classic, Willie Williams Armagideon Time. We hope the apocalypse isn't really imminent but, in the circumstances, it's a fair point – the battle is getting hotter and a lot of people won't get no justice tonight.
No tracklisting.

 This mix was first played out on London's alternative radio station Resonance FM
