Recommended music: 'Amnesty EP' by Ital Tek
This EP was released yesterday to raise funds for Amnesty International, as a direct response to the execution of Troy Davis by the US Government.
It opens with 'Zlap', and a pounding, thudding bassline with some extremely crunchy noises over the top. Powerful and intimidating, it kick-starts the EP like a zlap round the face. It's followed immediately by 'Phantom', which keeps up the pace and the level of bass.
The more melodic 'Forever' comes next, with an uplifting feel and a lighter vibe. Finally 'Prophet' picks up the rhythm. There's almost a dancehall feel to this one, it's a track that would sound great blasting out of a soundsystem.
Good beats for a good cause - what more do you need? You can listen to the EP and download it below.
