4 & 3

Even if queuing for a good five minutes to be next in line for the service of the bar-keep, I never question abandoning my eighth vodka red bull to go ape shit with the boys to this.

MSTRKRFT are, fundamentally, an evolution of Death From Above 1979 and are, as their name suggests, masters of their craft. 'Fist of God', their second studio album, is a very distinctive record within the electronic/dance system with nine of the eleven tracks heavily influenced by Jesse's grimey, bass-heavy DFA 1979 essence. Without the two anomaly tracks, the album is one giant weapon to any true industrial-rave hunter. If played in the right place at the right time, tracks such as 'It Ain't Love', 'Bounce', 'Vuvuvu' and 'Click Click' can make a right sweaty mess on the dancefloor.
Root around in the dirt and you'll find MSTRKRFT's secondary member, AI-P (producer of DFA 1979's album 'You're a Woman, I'm a Machine'), bringing his lighter, less daunting electro-pop juice into melodic songs 'Breakaway' and 'Heartbreaker'. The latter, featuring the vocals of John Legend, tells the poignant and all too familiar tale of romantic confusion; when you're besotted with someone and think the feeling is mutual, you couldn't be more wrong; listen to your mates; a story I'm sure most can affiliate with.
I had to check at least twelve times that this little piece of brillianace was definitely a song attributed to the dense work of MSTRKRFT. It is and it fills me up big time.
