Boomkat Product Review:
Rotten bass flesh rolls off boniest grime and techno drums in a wicked EP for Manchester’s Project 13, displaying two facets of new UK producer; Divided.
The London-based artist’s 2nd EP for the yung label carries a burly, swaggering momentum across both sides, hot-wiring the connections between UK bass music’s dankest arteries and the drug-fuelled, all night pressure of European techno.
Tipped by the Manchester pusher, Black Swallower is the kind of stripped-down bassbin lurker that quakes the nasal cavity and plastinates the marrow, locked into a hoods-up, shoulder-rolling flex and scissoring syncopation that’s all too often glossed over by other, nexx wave grime-techno dilettantes.
Flip it for the gully techno charge of Interzone, which sits pent and screwfaced with loping, dosed up drums and the kind of sloshing, rolling subs that ruin your creps in the dance, but you don’t mind ‘cos it was worth it.
