Boomkat Product Review:
Stripped down and optimised future Bass musics from Hemlock's newest signing. Here, Guy Andrews successfully follows the trajectory taken on his Discobelle release, acting like a more melancholy counterpart to the brittle syncopation of Joe or the Jazz/IDM-inflections of Four Tet and El Kid. A-side 'Shades' bears a structural influence clearly inherited from more post-rock-y headspaces, but with meticulously calculated beat programming and breakbeat funk dynamics akin to Anstam. B-side 'Textures' is more dubby, spaced-out and rolling, propelled by air-carving drum syncopation and supple, elastic bass pressure with well-timed Techno chords arriving at the crucial moment. Fans of Four Tet, Anstam, Joe, check it out.
