Boomkat Product Review:
Torn crystallises four cuts of tensile D&B pressure and downbeat grey area explorations for Samurai
Oscillating between shark-eyed and properly glum strains of D&B, Torn lives up to his reputation for cold, hard and nasty gear. The restive gnash and parry of ‘Insomnia’ is the evilest on show, all bone-rattling rolige and rictus propulsion, while ‘Self Reflection’ yields a more concentrated sort of grey area halfstep and ’Stagnation’ gives it some swamp foot swagger. Daring to differ, ‘Grethen’ suppresses his fiercer urges in favour of a hulking halfstep design full of negative space and unyielding threat.
