Rave legends Aquasky seem to have a strange fascination with numbers, describing the number 7 as their lucky number (hence the 777 record label) and releasing the album Raise The Devil on the 11th day of the 11th month of the 11th year. Not to mention they have been in the game 16 years reflected by the 16 tracks on what is ironically the 7th album they have released. If your mind isn't officially blown by this matrix meets 'The Mothman Prophecies' esque calendar manipulation then there isn't much else to say.

With the moons aligning in a fashion that point to it being a big year for the inventors of bassline breaks, the album acts as an amalgamation of sorts, featuring an all-star cast of notorious artists old and new from members of Scratch Perverts to Cutline.

The album is DOPE.
I'd go as far as to say it's the best thing iv heard all year.
