Southern Cali's Gabriel debuts with a pair of hair-raising creepers for Loxy & Ink's X-Factor imprint. "Encounter" on the flipside shakes it up steadily for the early-morning head-nodders, while "Horrorshow V.I.P." brings on the proper primetime pain. Taking a mental approach to the twisted soundscapes that swirl in the background, Gabriel knocks out tough, hard-hitting beats before the worms come alive, and the bottom-end starts punching and kicking like a beast aching for release. Impressive.
