Uncle Social - I Will Have Cake

An unknown Chicago-based artist's debut album on the great label Futonic Records, Uncle Social brings back the good ol' days of '90s industrial/rave/house/electro music. It's obvious that this man had been around during those times; this is much more than a tribute to those days, it's a step forward from them. Classic homegrown samples gives the album a "party-with-your-friends-in-the-basement" feel. It's noisy, it's beaty, it's a workout, and it's as fun as all get out. Futonic Records put it best: "We can’t think of a better way to close out the decade than with a shout out to its beginning."
