Boomkat Product Review:
Batu’s Timedance shift into 2nd gear for 2017 with Ploy’s canny set of percussive studies, Intrigued By The Drum, following on from 2016’s Iron Lungs 12” which was key piece of the label’s influential banner year.
In four parts the London-based producer really gets into the mechanics of his thing while also flowering mor textured new ideas, manifest in the nuanced triplet wiggle and grafts-like atmospheric sculpturing of Intrigued By The Drum and to beautifully wistful ends with the ersatz tribal shimmy of Zoom with its elusive, bumblebee clarinet line.
Blow Poke is perhaps the EPs’ most rugged and dancefloor dedicated move, built around a fluid rhythmelodic cadence and rock solid bass pressure, before Bad Seed catches him tilting to a sort of sloshing halfstep wade rinsed with wicked FX and strings to sound like vintage Frictional Shake in hyperspace.
