DJ Donna Summer Panther Tracks

  • Words: Michael Byrne
  • Label: Cock Rock Disco
  • XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10

Wonderfully calculated to piss off your loved ones, neighbors, and pets, Panther Tracks bangs like few things I’ve heard this year. Yes, DJ Donna Summer (a.k.a. Jason Forrest) has gone back to breakbeat hardcore, splitting from the tame, calculated IDM/techno/”other” he released with Shamelessly Exciting. What kind of crack fiend can dance to this for longer than one track is a mystery–“Get Down” is well above 150 bpm, and most others follow suit. “Rock Rock Rock” is a gem, though, exploding from a nice-enough maximal rhythm into sample-splattered beats that feel like listening to a day’s worth of radio compacted into less than an hour. Actually, so does most of the album.
