well known on the dnb and dubstep scene for his fiendishly twisted artwork, uk creative genius monsta is also a beast of a producer. in this, his third release for subtrakt he teams up with >mr key< to bring us >space raiders<, a vocal dubstep demon of truly gargantuan proportions, so huge, in fact that it threatens to bring down mankind itself. or maybe its just a packet of crisps? dean rodell bravely attempts to contain the threat on his remix, but an army of space raiders march up out of their packet and flatten the whole city using a supernatural arsenal of sonic weapons that pull down skyscrapers with rasping bass and fry a million brains with shrieking sirens that can be heard in even the far corners of the galaxy. on the second remix dnb hero >raiden< stands up, and the guerilla war begins. taking his inspiration from the paranoid b-movies of the cold war era he morphs the original lead sounds into something so spooky and bizarre the space raiders have no choice but to pack their flying saucers and piss off back to zetareticuli. phew, that was close. supported by maryanne hobbs (bbc radio1)

ltd 50% deal ...significant success for artists is based on two things: talent and timing. dave.i.d has talent by the spadeful but his timing may also be spot on. when dave.i.d released his debut single in march 09 he was probably too ahead of the game but now as we enter the last third of 2010 it feels right on the money. daves initial release went down very well though. paul lester in the guardians important new band of the day feature totally lost it, calling dave.i.d >totally brilliant< and dubbing him >aphex timbaland<. his single was voted single of the year in dazed & confused and made the end of year round-up in drowned in sound. now with the amazing zola jesus setting up so well around the world and the dark electronica coming more to the fore outside its nerd roots, dave.i.d sounds perfectly in tune with the unhappy, troubled sound of now.
