After indulging us with the magnificent Burial Mix perfections of 'King In My Empire' and 'Jah Rule', Moritz and Mark return with a new golliath 12" on the Rhythm and Sound imprint.
Instrumentals on both sides, the most noticeable element as soon as the space echoes of the opening 'Imprint' rumble in is that the formula that has been conceived and perfected by M+M will never cease to amaze. Reverberating pops and emmited static fold themselves around the incredibly deep, rumbling bassline. Shards of dub delay infiltrate the mix, but the cathartic drift of the track is, simply put, mesmerising. 'Trace' is another choice cut, the hiss thrown deep to the fore, almost like a straight cut that was mangled by interference.
One of Posh Isolation’s craftiest rhythmic minds gets down to rugged designs in First On Comedown, the follow-up to his Bidders Must Justify Their Price album and a smart rework of Sand Circles.
Morphing cues from UK grime and Arca’s expressionist electronica, the results arguably sound somewhere between the knotted, frazzled output of Italy’s Gang Of Ducks and the deconstructed designs of Acre or Filter Dread, with highlights in the crooked grime scuttle of First On Comedown and a shapeshifting creature named Rattle Me.
