Heavyweight Ed Banger debut from France's DJ Pone! Pone might be new to the label, but heads already know he's been around the scene for a minute. As a longtime battle DJ, Pone has racked up DMC Championship titles in France since '99. Since then, he's linked up with Birdy Nam Nam, co-produced an A$AP Rocky on a track, and has torn it down on the decks at parties all over the globe. With all this experience, it's no wonder Erratic Impulses bangs the way it does. Just check the sound on "Falken's Maze" on which Pone proceeds to freaking the funk and break down the breaks in a major way. Next up, "M.F.E." turns it out on some epic boogie breaks biz, while "Dipodaine" bangs it on the electro-techno tip. Finally, the title track "Erratic Impulses" brings it all together with vocoder funk, electro breaks, and nasty synths for all the freaks. Import copies, pic sleeve.
