Last spotted on Dispatch two years ago with Hyroglifics, Kolectiv return to Ant TC1's unfailing underground hub with three purring, mechanical funklets. "Frozen" rolls with a lava-like tech flow than just forces you to let it go (not sorry), "Infinite Realms" is heads-down 3am deepness a la DLR or Safire while "Timelines" flips the vibe with a Commix style halftimer with ghostly Robert Owens style vocals and a precision-timed double time switch. Level up.
Three of the D&B scene's most exciting producers fight it out in the latest release from legendary label Dispatch Recordings. Working together on every track, this really does feel like history in the making. Kicking off the proceedings with "Human Sacrifice", clicky percussion scatters over creeping atmosphere and dark, sweltering bass. "Lemonade" sucks you into its depths without warning, offering little to suggest light, carbonated, zestiness aside from the insanely crisp production and "Orange Roots" is full of deep, powerful imagery of nature in motion. Finally, "Temper Glass" is a delicately swooning exploration in sound design and the limits of drum and bass; dark and deadly but elegant too. A completely immersive EP every way that it turns.
