Boomkat Product Review:
Every so often a record drops that manages to encapsulate the zeitgeist of a scene with pinpoint accuracy. Untold's 'Gonna Work Out Fine EP' has done just that. Through timing, intuition, skill and perseverence, he's crafted six tracks that traverse the deepest Chicago house tones through to the rawest UK grime and Funky, knotted with the vision of a highly skilled beat technician, to nail the sound of 2009 firmly against the wall. Essentially, this record is made up from one sharply focussed palette of sounds, namely the kind of wampin' bassline used in Musical Mob's Pulse X (and more recently Lil Silva's 'Pulse vs Flex'), conversely combined with the kind of lush house chords and keys associated with the best of Chez Damier, Larry Heard or Ron Trent. On some level, both elements descended from the same source, the clubs of NYC, Chicago and Detroit from the mid 80's onwards, but despite diverging according to requirements, they've come full circle to be smashed like atoms at the interzone of Untold's studio, fused into a mass of highly concentrated goodness. It's a testament to his skill as a producer that he can make six killer tracks from so little, using knowledge picked up from years spent mastering the art of jungle and D'n'B dynamics to balance these disparate sounds into en of the most measured takes on UK Bass music around today. We're quite honestly taken aback by this release and we're guessing you will too. Most highly recommended!
