cupp cave - Retina Waves
Belgian beatsmith Cupp Cave returns on this bumper full-length for the very on-form Ramp label, and shows the jaw-dropping depth of his style across nine jump-cut, overdriven tunes. Coming across like a malformed hybrid of the Flying Lotus-patented Brainfeeder sound and the fuzzy 'knackered house' of Andy Stott, Cupp Cave's sound is something of a revelation. Sure, scuzzing up beats is nothing new (ask Dem Hunger) but the refined quality of Cupp Cave's production elevates this far beyond a simple exploration of a particular style. Low-slung disco rhythms and decomposing house loops are saturated to the point where the 'mistakes' are more of a focus than any more tangible composed elements. This is handled expertly, and what could in the wrong hands emerge as jump-cut slapstick 'noise' lands in territory we're happy to visit again and again. One for low lights, late nights and fans of any of the aforementioned artists - miss this at your peril.
