Thor – “Decay” (2018)

Thor is Thorhallur Skulason and Decay is his latest 12″, a four-song house groover. Every article I’ve seen about it tells me this is dub techno, but whatever you want to call it, it’s guaranteed to get your body moving. You’ll find yourself getting off the couch an bouncing around the room without even realizing it happened, because these songs are infectious, sneaking into your system and firing off synapses to make your muscles twitch. “Rusty Flashback” in particular is a serious pulsing jam with great flow and beats.

Albums like Decay are tough to write about… so with that in mind I’m just going to sit back, sip my adult beverage, and enjoy the ride. Because this is undoubtedly one of the best new releases of 2018 and is going to be getting a lot of plays between now and when we work on our year end Top 5 lists in December.
