Why? (Cybotron (White Label 12")

By Steve Goodman, 10 April 2000

Although he sticks to a tried and tested formula, Dillinja sometimes reminds us that up Ed Rush and Optical’s derriere was not the only available avenue for darkcore drum’n’bass. Maybe this is what the vocal refrain of the track is referring to. Anyway, ‘Why?’ rates up there with some of his recent best on the Valve and Test labels. A hummid pipe-synth intro is rudely rumbled by demonic electrokortical pounding before the customary Dillinja frantic amen rinse out. Played very loud, this is spine tingling.
