music for the quiet hour / the drawbar organ
woe to the septic heart
matt recommends: "mesmerising soundclash of marimbas, organs, & cold, stark bass heavy soundscapes that really shouldn’t all come together".
1st release on ambient dubstep trailblazer’s label brings marimba polyrhythms & spacious soundscapes to his doomy, bass heavy throb. ‘music for the quiet hour’ continues in his vein of jaw-droppingly heavy bass music with the most nuanced beats & haunted vocals you will find in the greyish spectrum of gloomy down-step. the lengthy compositions on ‘the drawbar organ’ bring a whole new quiver to the producer’s bow. a far cry from the percussion heavy workout of 2011’s ‘pinch & shackleton’ lp, the beats here are strictly minimal, driven by fascinating, cyclical melodies that, while also minimalist in feel, develop into epic tonal workouts. a staggering, expansive release.
leo recommends: "the finest producer to emerge from the bristol dubstep scene, his latest collection of minimalist organ jams, dark techno beats & atmospheric sub-scapes is mesmerising from start to finish."
