Zomby

Mercury's Rainbow

modern love



limited edition 2lp in reverse-board gatefold + download

Released: 1st Dec 2017

£23.99


After nearly a decade in the making, Zomby finally dispatches ‘Mercury’s Rainbow’, his astonishing dedication to Wiley’s series of Eskibeat releases, aka the cornerstone of grime.

its dizzying stew is concocted with computer-game blips, disjointed grime cut-ups and whipflash arpeggios - an expressively avant spin on the Wiley’s garage originals. the effect is of loosening up and liquefying the Eski riddims into sinewy constructions that both sliver and confront. ‘mercury’s rainbow’ plays like an alternative history of grime, where machismo was sublimated for abstraction.
