A new project by two undercover house/techno affiliates – one a Berliner and the other a Londoner – pretty much given away by their all-analogue production approach and rigorously live mixdown approach. No mercy on those low-ends... The undertaking centres around the more sparse, broken and heavyweight spectrums of the dance field, merging their various palates of sound to produce a dub-heavy approach to the two-step genre. Early UK grime and dubstep days - artists like Horsepower Productions and his LP In Fine Style - come to mind immediately. The mixes feel raw, rugged, rough and made from the heart.
A. Itinerant Magic – the track wouldn't sound out of place in an Actress set, thanks to those tweeting sequences of melodies flying in and out that grainy percussion rustling back and forth. It develops with pure fury, contorting those drum machine shots to their very limit and morphing the percussion segments to produce a sludgy, raucous cluster of sound and finally unleashing an all-out cacophony of snares, hi-hats and sci-fi cinematic drama.
B1. Jack The Dub – this is the ONE... for both sheer production-quality and dance-floor sensibility. Apart from the convoluted mass of percussion which grinds its way to the break, the track is actually incredibly minimal in its elements and it uses a stop-start motion arrangement to get its point across. This will likely be played and appreciated by many of the Bristol crew – Pev, Kowton etc - and its liable to tear any floor to pieces.
B2. Monkey – the 'dubbiest' and most daring of the three. The arrangement is utterly chaotic and sparse but it somehow manages to form into a distinct shape. Mounds of delayed snares, hi-hats and chords wail their way sporadically amidst small bundles of burly kicks and rolling, distorted, dub-filtered effects.
