Saturday Teenage Kick

Roadrunner

It’s good to have friends in high places, especially if a little extra attention can be garnered by the Superstar makeover of His DJ-ship Keoki on a couple of this release’s tracks. “X-Panding Limits” is typical of Tom Holkenburg’s style (not to mention part of his moniker). Consider the scratching, the prerequisite build-ups, the rock guitar loops, the hard Rude Boy rap. Thoughts could easily turn to Death in Vegas and Fear Factory. Could it be mere coincidence that Dino Cazares plays a part in the proceedings? Brash, funky, fast and loud — Dam rock rules! Roadrunner, 536 Broadway, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10012
