I'm no fan of revisiting the past, no matter how glorious it might have been, but the amen break has an ineffable quality that'll keep drawing me back to jungle until the day I die. Don't get the idea that "Clarion Call" is some sort of quaint nostalgia jaunt though. Homemade Weapons have loaded eight armour-piercing bullets into the chamber and they ain't prepared to let bygones be bygones. Amen to that.
Favorite track: Second Skin.
The follow up to the 2013 'Kintaro' EP for Samurai, Homemade Weapons returns with another freshly crafted collection of potent rhythms. From the alpha stepping dominance of Clarion Call, to the relentless amen juggernaut that is Mileena (MVP), we get another showcase of the Homemade Weapons stylish versatility and attention to intricate detail. Poised to launch his own 'Weaponry' imprint, the 'Clarion Call' EP arrives as a statement of intent as well as being another 8 tracks of essential crate fillers.
* Please note. This is not an LP! This is a 4 track vinyl EP with 4 extra digital tunes.

This level of quality and novelty is a rare thing. Ruffhouse were almost singularly pushing this type of dark, industrial halfstep which is now carbon copied by so many. Make no mistake, these guys set and raised the bar. If only more releases could achieve this. Origami Bulldoser
