Boomkat Product Review:
Beneath’s Mistry declassifies the debut drop of UK soundboy pressure from Gaunt for public consumption.
The Cambridge-born, Brixton-based producer may be fresh to the game but comes steeled for the rave with four tracks of blunt bass and toiling percussion that sound like they’ve been at it since ’92, wearing down their threads and cogs until they’re sufficiently grinding for 2015.
The Hessle-favoured drunken master rolige ofCrowd Noise jumps up first with drily functional dynamics, whereas JP trips out to electro-avian chatter and tribal chant socked with gut-punch subs.
Likewise, the lop-sided MMRH is sure to scatter the dance with bullying force but, the electro-filleted triplets of SP12 prove a deft mix of gloomy voices, viscous subs and dub sleight that’s cannier than his brutish gestures may first indicate.
