pendle coven - Marriage Of Convenience EP
If pendle coven's most recent transmission from the bunker ("£100 a metre ep" ) unleashed their admiration for classic uk hardcore circa 1992 - "marriage of convenience" sees them take an altogether more cherry flavoured pill. "X Marks The Sample" happily spreads its wings across the full span of the a side and with insatiable melodic abandon delivers an alternate take to the pop-fuelled minimalism cologne has claimed as its own over the last 5 years. This is a track of lovingly expansive proportions, a majestic blend of happy beats and reflective chords - if the underground ever deserved an after-hours anthem, this is surely it. "Modern Mode" opens the flipside and could well end up being the signature piece for this label - encompassing all the things it holds so dear: endlessly padded basslines, motor city progressions, airy rhythm skitters, dub chords - diligently honed and repackaged for maximum impact. in other words - a killer! "Tributary" closes this ep with a careful study of the downtempo exploits the likes of theo parrish have become so well known for. Opening with a heavyweight bottom-end metallic clunk in 4/4, this track soon expands into a multicoloured melange of spacious hi-hats and twinkling string samples - leading one set of ears in this office to implore all onlookers to wait until a suitably early hour of the morning before exposing themselves to its incorrigible charms. Alternatively, a cross between the peerless skills of the aforementioned mr Parrish and the sublow cuts of the digital mystikz or maybe even kode 9 might give you the descriptive fuel that's so hard to articulate when it's gone 4am.
