Boomkat Product Review:
New Zealand's Consequence came into contact with Exit Records head D-Bridge on a tour of his country. D-Bridge was hugely impressed with the techy, emotionally driven style and enlisted Consequence into the Autonomic podcast/events alongside similar minded players/producers like Instra:mental and ASC. 'Live For Never' is his debut album, featuring contributions from the aforementioned peers with ASC appearing on the brooding 'From A Distance', dBridge enhancing the Vangelis-meets-Bassbins sound of 'Life Is Timing' and Instra:mental tightening the torque of 'Reflex Reaction'. On his own, Consequence creates vivid scapes informed by D'n'B but sitting neatly on the periphery of the style. With 'Fog' he crafts dense atmospheres using field recordings, grainy textured synths and acutely melancholy melodies, while 'Pseudo Echo' aims for a widescren cinematic effect with hugely impressive results. With a smart balance of heavyweight D'n'B steppers rhythms and open-heart harmonics Consequence may have just created one of the best D'n'B albums you'll hear this year.
