Boomkat Product Review:
Yung Bristolian, Facta, takes to Idle Hands with a personalised brand of 130bpm bass darkness, beefed with a fine Hodge hook-up. Much like Beneath, Batu or Kowton, he's adapted the dank dread space and groove pressure of classic dubstep, garage and dub techno to a lean, viscous new format built for brooding in front of big soundsystems. His 'Loveless' solo joint is a case in point, patterning minimalist, skanking rhythms with coarse textures, slivers of dawning light and a skunk-hazed mumble (maybe Tricky?) in a mesmerising groove that could last twice as long and not lose our attention. B-side, he teams up with Outboxx's Hodge for a grittier, tribalist flux of delayed drums, amorphous bass shapes and prickling electronics.
