K90 have earned quite some compliments for their live sets and remixes for the likes of Jon the Dentist, but this double A-side production shows them to have just as capable studio digits. Blasting at the start with a conventional house situation (replete with overly repetitive samples akin to the more acid loops of Fatboy Slim), "Rock the Show" sends up the conventions by sneaking in a truly dirty and nasty breakdown that could probably be best described as trance melodies with their eyes propped open, mimicking the rehabilitation scene of A Clockwork Orange. The flip promises just as much genre subversion while going even harder, faster until its mood is completely unidentifiable. Unspectacular, but clever all the same.
