First picking up steam back in March with his “Yo Vogue” release on Dirtybird, French Fries is back with a four track EP entitled Space Alarm. Admittedly the “future bass” or “post-dubstep” sound French Fries represents is not for everyone, but if you can get into it, it sounds insanely good. The title track “Space Alarm” opens the EP with nasty ghetto tech vibes and carries us into “Smoke Wine,” a track with a bassline as tribal as it is sultry. Wrap it all together with vocals that have been deliciously chopped and screwed, and you have yourself a veritable midset anthem. First up on the remix train is the man Justin Martin, who manages to essentially meld the EP’s two originals into one and add in that signature Dirtybird sound, complete with a old school garage touch (you also may have heard this one on Justin Jay’s Dirtybird Halloweend mix). Belgian team GoldFFinch take “Smoke Wine” on its own for remix #2, layer in some more breaks and drum claps–all but preparing the track for the club. With Space Alarm, twenty-year old French Fries ups the ante on what is considered quality bass music in the scene today.
