Boomkat Product Review:
Greasy club mutations from South London's Gage, who dots back to Finn's 2 B REAL with another short, sharp plate of mucky microtonal breaks, pneumatic ambient grime and summery deep grooves.
'Back 2 Bellingham' follows last year's under-appreciated "E Anthem", shining a spotlight on Gage's genre-widening club construxions. These tracks ooze like magma thru anxious amphetemine rave ('Back 2 Bellingham') and weightless foley grime ('The Swarm') all the way to, surprisingly, chirpy late-nite house ('Untitled').
Anyone who's been following Gage's development over the years should have an idea of what to expect, but since his crucial run of Crazylegs 12"s that folded grime and dubstep into experimental club molds, he's been leveling up rapidly, going from strength to strength. Refreshingly open-minded stuff that never feels boxed in.
