Leading a wildly eclectic release, stilted blippy opener 'Bad Haircut' pops off with a hard and slow hip hop shuffle under buzzing faded synth chords. 'Supermax' retools a classic by the band of the same name to create a Phil Collins-like roller with a cyborg twinge. Title track 'Broken Arrow' launches straight away into a rhythmically deranged abstract footwork beat before building somberly to a triumphant finish. 'Y' closes the EP by marrying a mantric 80's vocal chorus and footwork-like hyper-percussion with extra cowbell.
Being that it is such a family affair, the other two founders of the label have joined in on remix detail. Obey City's take on 'Bad Haircut' ups the tempo and finds a new context for the original's off-kilter arpeggios, while Kuhn's version of 'Broken Arrow' turns out a buoyant agressive juke-jungle hybrid fit to back your next GTA and/or Mariokart 64 session.
