Review: Infrasonics label boss Spatial takes a trip beyond his own label for this new three track release on Well Rounded, dropping an absolutely mighty tune in the shape of crisp and dry 2-step tech monster "Bring Me". Alongside the choppy thrills of that opener, "Discoborg" boasts a demented set of disjointed stabs over an equally airless beat, while the rooted-noted techno of "You Workin'" slowly builds into a gloriously far out and head-expanding delight.

Review: Upon releasing his first, limited edition 12" in 2009, Spatial was compared to Burial. Two years on, it's a comparison that looks frequently less and less valid. Where his early work drew clear influence from the likes of Burial and Basic Channel, Spatial, his eponymous debut album, boasts far more subterranean funk. Sure, the crackling atmospherics, unfeasibly heavy low end and sparse production are all still present, but there's little in the way of creeping paranoia or breathlessly intensity. Instead, Spatial teases and titillates with dancefloor promise, as rhythms pulse, acid house synths stab and reverb-laden vocal snippets ricochet between the speakers. It's dubby and atmospheric, but it's also a lot of fun.

Review: Spatial's mission to explode the conventions of the dubstep and bass scenes from which he emerged continues in fine style with this new house-orientated three-tracker. Sure there are traces of dub and glitchy darkness in "Plastic Relic" but beyond that, there is a real evidence of a more dancefloor-orientated agenda from the Infrasonic boss. "Book Down Way Round" is a relentless anthem with a female mantra delivered over a Paul Woolford-style techno-funk backdrop. However, the title track isn't called "The Slammer" for nothing, it's a heavy slice of the raw, garage-flecked, pumpin' house that hasn't been heard much since New York's Limelight circa 1994!
