Stallone The Reducer. A strong name with a strong sound on a strong label (Est. 83 being a division of FIT Sound). The artist himself has actually released music under a number of different aliases including Lil' Riki, Samuel Consiglio and Samuels and was formerly in cult Detroit act ADULT. This particular moniker is however reserved for the more EBM kinda flex, the sort of gear to thrash out and get some serious head-nodding going. "Drug Pusher" is a menacing piece of work with its harsh baselines and 808 rhythms, while "Cop Gets Off" is a sparser, more aqueous cousin that verges onto the industrial side of things. The flip contains the distorted patterns and hissing percussion of "Do The Seatbelt!" followed by the utterly wonky flavours of "Trade Show". A serious TIP!
