Boomkat Product Review:
Another crushing transmission from Andy Stott's Echo-Chamber, the thirty fifth release on Modern love and without a doubt one of the label's deepest, bass-heavy twelves to date. "Unkown Exception" on the A-side has been in gestation for quite some months and has undergone various transformations before reachning this primed edition. It's a sultry, padded track that makes use of a slowed-down template before covering it in swathes of dub pads and a pulsating square bassline - the end result sounding like a midnight sound jam between Theo Parrish, Maurizio, Larry Heard and Burial. Halfway-through and the track starts to disintegrate, coming to a heady breakdown that leaves only a trail of delay before it comes to a halt - re-emerging with a minimal clank in 4/4 that you'd be more likely to find in a villalobos set than anywhere else. Pure genius. Over to the flipside and the long promised Massacre, a purist bass session in 4/4 that comes complete with super-loud dub stabs and another bassline that's hard to fathom in one sitting. If you're after BASS murder - look no further. KILLER!!!!!!
