Boddika has been absolutely murking it over the past few years. His releases with Joy Orbison have been topping charts all over the place and his Nonplus label has released a ton of 12"s from a who's who of the vanguard of UK club music: Actress, Kassem Mosse, Skudge, etc. It's only fitting that the prolific producer and label boss would be at the helm for one of this year's biggest releases. Nonplus' Think and Change is set to feature new tracks from Four Tet and Pearson Sound, as well as the official release of Joy Orbison's sought after "Big Room Tech House Dj Tool - TIP!" If this first sampler is any indication we are in for some banging tracks in the near future. "Boddika's VIP" mix of his and Joy Orbison's "Mercy" turns up the aggression on a track that has already been killing it. On the flip Boddika enlists the seductive minimalism of Kassem Mosse who's "Broken Patterns" wastes no time in getting down to business. Its looping, rave inspired synth stabs slowly percolate around an ever evolving percussion track. Recommended.
