Last spotted on Macabre Unit, young Milton Keynes-based producer Occult gets a full four tracker on Innamind and it's well worth investigating... We launch with the title track, a well-crafted halfstepper that oozes space and finds time for a classic digidub refrain and occasional echoes of amen. Further on we hit "Assassins". As deadly as its title suggests, there's more space to be found amongst the naked elements as we weave through the half steps and spooked out FX, dodging the bullets as we ride. "Sidious" is more of a complex affair with richer elements and melodic polyrhythms to complement the layered steps and buzzing bass. Finally we hit "Unseen"; a collabo with with Pheral, it's a smooth-talking deep number that peeps into the canyons of dub darkness without ever spiralling to danger. A bubbling cauldron indeed...
Serious headphone vibes from rising producer Occult. Fusing ambience with soul-laced electronica and faint traces of dub, both of these cuts ooze a stunning sense of melancholy and twinkling depth. "Loose Change" is a sonic sapphire. With a two-chord swing and Burial-style scratches and rattles, it's an instant charmer, especially at this time of year. "Mesopatamia" starts on a similar tear-jerking vibe before - seemingly out of nowhere - along comes a 4/4 and shards of harmonica! Keep your eyes on Occult, this guy's got talent.
