Boomkat Product Review:
Logos lets rip with the dancefloor hellfire of ‘Fifth Monarchy’ on the next part of Berceuse Heroique’s ‘Ode To The Soundsystem’ trilogy, leading on from his ace ‘Imperial Flood’ LP
Proudly showing off his UK bass cadet credentials, Logos pulls few punches over three shots of cutthroat grime, grey area pressure and one of the 2019’s sickest cuts in ‘Ghosting’, plus a powerful Ossia remix channelling proper yardcore vibes a la DJ Scud. Trust it’s enough to make a soundboy weep.
‘Essa’ sees him wield bolshy Korg Triton lines - old skool grime’s weapon of choice - in a rictus roll-cage of ricocheting rimshots and jawside claps while ‘Dust’ tests out a nervier skank into the grey area gassed on noxious dub chords and flinty 2-step drums like the UK’s answer to T++ or Felix K.
Better yet, ‘Ghosted’ brings a steppers’ shockout like Aba Shanti meets La Peste, going all the way in on that strangely UK-favoured offshoot of JA dub proper - island-to-island style - and Ossia cements that link via Bristol and late ‘90s Brixton with the heads down steppers juggernaut remix of ‘Eska.’
