Boomkat Product Review:
Following on from the eponymous 10-20 debut album, Ed Davenport has designed a series of EP releases: Island, Mountain, Lake and Isthmus. Island is the first of these, and one of three to take the form of a digital-only release. After 'Pol' introduces itself with a barrage of percussive, granulated sound particles, 'Hallow' brings some more rhythmically ordered sounds to the EP, shuffling through beats with a woody thwack on the snare while all kinds of incidental and ornamental noises fire away in the background. Rounds-era Four Tet springs to mind, but there's something a little more up-to-the-minute about all this too, Sounding like Autechre trying to find their way out of a forest, 'Nei (Reversion)' is a deluge of organic polyrhythms, before finally 'Thing From Inner Space' wraps up the EP with yet another blast of challenging, massively articulate beat-led electronics. Ace.
