Boomkat product review for:

bass clef - May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way

Since the release of his debut album (A Smile Is A Curve That Straightens Most Things) in '06, Ralf Cumbers has occupied a niche position as an experimentalist outsider within the wider dubstep community. With his sophomore LP 'May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way' he expands on his theme of elastic bass and beats with trombone, including extra percussion from Frank Byng and Brass from The Hackney Memorial Free Jazz Marching Band. This makes tracks like 'You Do My Head In' bounce with a tribalist jungle feel that releases his music from the halfstep flex, and lends a swinging broken beat feel to 'Night On Mare Street'. However it's still Bass Clef's name on the masthead here, and it's his deft bassline manipulations and electronic processing that makes 'Heartbreak Soca Cascade' and the Flaming Lips feel of 'Broken Love' a diverse yet tightly engineered work that should earn him respect far beyond dubstep circles. Recommended!
