Boomkat Product Review:
Different Circles ringleaders, Mumdance & Logos, load up their first joint plate since the seminal Proto  LP with two super wide, grittily spacious and HD hybrids of grime, techno and sci-fi sound design for their highly collectible series.
Proceeding the label’s sought-after shots from Rabit, Airhead, and two volumes of the Weightless compilation featuring Inkke, Dark0, Murlo, and the pair's own gem, Café Del Mar; this new 12" catches them carving out a quintessentially UK rave sound for 2017 from a bank of modular kit and software plugins.
On the A-side, FFS they feel to warp the club with head-compressing subbass hits and pinched claps wrapped in a slow-strobing, stop-start derangement punctuated by nutty vocals and convulsive modem noise. It’s as close as they’ve come to turning the club into a faulty anti-gravity chamber and sends dancers reeling every time.
The B-side’s BMT explores a skizzier, belligerent sound. Rolling from elusive location recordings to stuttering flashcore kicks and a flush of plasmic bell tones shredded up with combustible digital distortion, they toe a fine line between panic and dread, and a more stush, shark-eyed sort of resolution, preferring to re-calibrate and translate their influences from classic tech-step, grime and cinematic sound design, rather than merely imitate them. The result is a proper rave girder that stands out miles from the crowd.
The label's back catalogue has also just gone live on Download formats for the first time!
