The latest free release on ABAGA Records keeps up the standard of quality that sets apart these EPs from the massive bulk of shoddy dubstep contaminating our dancefloors. The Deranged EP kicks off in typical Tactus style; Dynasty Of Doom is harsh and heavy and yet has a danceable skank that doesn’t let up. Killa Na Run, is again testament to Tactus’ reggae roots, with catchy vocals and melodic guitar riffs offsetting some hefty sub. Tracked Down places itself firmly on the dub side of dubstep, and allows the mellow side of Tactus as producer time to shine through; it also lulls us into a false sense of security before the EPs conclusion with Cuntaminated, which ups the ante for a filthy finish to a belter of an EP.
