Boomkat Product Review:
Debut album time from Sabre, gathering 6 tracks of hi-tech D'n'B science featuring guest spots from Alix Perez, Noisia and Icicle plus a remix from Rockwell for the Critical Recordings label. Along with figureheads like Instra:mental or DBridge, Sabre has recently shifted his production style towards a darker light, opting out of purely rave functions for something a little more esoteric, complex and cinematic with 'A Wandering Journal'. On his own, Sabre crafts detailed scenic vistas like 'Peril' and the crafty 'Follow Polaris' with its stealthy tempo changes attempting to bridge the gap between dubstep and D'n'B. But in collaboration we roll from gloomy sci-fi tech-step like 'Quarters' feat Noisia and Icicle through the advanced flex of 'Javelin' featuring Alix Perez and onto Rockwell's fiercely tight and uptempo version of the original moody Latin title track. If you were seduced by the Consequence album or love Kryptic Minds, Commix or Burial, this is down your alley.
