Boomkat Product Review:
Having already been given a full 40 minute slot on the breezeblock before even getting to release his second EP, Andy Stott is on a mission to wrong-foot allcomers with one of the most devastating twelves you’ll hear this year. “Ceramics” is a fully-fledged beast of a tune – in awe of Basic Channel and Dave Clarke’s seminal Red series the delivery here is nothing short of deadly – dubwise chords, skittering hi hats that just build and build and a determined 4/4 thud that’s thoroughly unrelenting - an incendiary mix of depth and robustness that won’t easily be followed. The flipside “Credit” dips its toes into the breezy pastures of classic Detroit – timeless melodies and that widescreen spaciousness timelessly defined by the likes of Dan Curtin, The Connection Machine and, of course, Carl Craig. Cut extra loud and lovingly mastered by Dubplates and Mastering in Berlin, we couldn’t possibly recommend this strongly enough. First in a new series of six EP’s on Modern Love, get on it!
