There's a great sense of space travel to Commit's productions. Taking off from the iced-out planet he left us on with "Saturn Return", here he jets us into the thick misty synth fog of "Lunar Cry" before crash-landing on the unforgiving world of "Eyes Down" where industrial bass and crisp-but-subtle guitar rhythms are the main currency. Later on in the journey he switches of the headlights and flies blind into a cosmic sea of piano-based space debris ("Deadlights") before taking us into hyper speed with the stunning, hunch-backed pneumatic riddim "Extrasensory". Plotting the course for the next universe, we can't wait to see where he's taking us next.
Destination down under: Sydney-based Commit reps a bold sound that refuses to sit still. While each of these four tracks are in-keeping with Paradise Lost's spacious, deep remit, there's a fine-tuned sense of titanic drama throughout. The elastic bass on "Southern Promise" is undeniably funky. The breezing synth licks on "Saturn Return" cause rushes on a Sasha & Digweed level. "Take Me Home" is all steppy and paranoid while "The Void" is your classic first class ticket on the dungeon express. Four tracks, four reasons why Paradise Lost are at the top of the dub game. You'd be wise to commit to this...
