Boomkat Product Review:
Debut EP from hotly tipped Glasgow based producer Wireman, offering up his first batch of tracks for public consumption via Trus'me's Prime Numbers imprint. Wireman has been tipped by Trus'me himself as "A melting pot where Carl Craig, Deepchord, Burial and Drexciya are all put together" and the description is fairly apt, as title track 'Armour' sounds to us like the freshened Detroit styles of Andy Stott mixed with the rich dub elements of Deepchord in a well balanced blend that will immediately win him fans. The flipside tracks are where matters diverge into other areas, with 'Axiom' running off on another tangent entitrely, towards heavy dub tech in a similar style to Andy Stott's steppin' technoid dub explorations or a darker revision of Aardvarck's recent 'Bloom' 12". Final track 'Perspex' makes the Drexciya tag fit with an off kilter electro workout that also reminds us of 'Stay Down' era Two Lone Swordsmen, and finishes what looks to be a very promising start for Wireman.
