The Isle Of Wight's Sepia recently started putting out more straight-up breakier material, but here on Polaroids, which sees him join with Mindstep, he's fully reverted to the deeper stuff he's better known for. There are five new tracks to get stuck into too, including the sleepy jazzy haze of "Never Hurt You", the ambient synth lagoon "Blitzball" and the scatterbeat shoegaze vibes of the title track.
Known for his deeper spacious dub flavours, here Sepia switches for something altogether more forthright. Powered by swinging breakbeats and bulbous sub-soaked bassline, "Outbreak" isn't dissimilar to an old Bassbin Twin record and it comes with cool chopped up vocal hits a la Dirtybird. "Cornered" takes us back into Sepia's darker, slimier dungeon. Boasting some interesting dynamics around the kick drum, there's still plenty of energy in his depths.
