The Constant State label launches in style with a record from Ian Blevins & Phil Moody's Al Gobi outfit, who had something of a breakthrough 2013 with releases for Disco Bloodbath, Rothmans, Culprit LA and Audio Parallax. While the original mix of "A Cup of Tea" is dark and unsettled - beautifully balanced bass notes and piano cutting through heavy, storm-pregnant air, Cottam's accompanying remix is the distillation of a second wind. His tribal, twisted, acidic treatment of this 3am concrete bunker anthem never overwhelms the piano refrain, instead giving it a new life, like the ghost of a party suddenly bequeathed fresh purpose as tired legs find boundless energy. Meanwhile, "Pueblo Grande" offers a different side to Al Gobi's productions; something harder, more insistent. Submerged snares and synths like razor wire combine with a raw bassline that stomps eloquently from 1994 to present day without missing a beat - and possibly inventing a few on its way - to create something wonderfully unique and very, very special.
