Longstanding low end magician Ian Tobias lays down three stunningly stark designs for Foundation Audio. Each one shuddering with his hazy, cloudy signature, we leap from street bossing hip-hop references on "In The Back" to deep dream bubbles and blasts on "Body Lure" and back again via wonky space experiments on "Super Low Limbo". Complete with a chamber-priming remix from Clearlight, this EP ticks so many boxes we're thinking of setting up a box factory.
Two contrasting slices of future bass work from the shadowy Paranoid Inc; "Half A Block From Getting Shot" plays with distorted harmonics and a deftly sliced Wu sample. "All Around You" flips the vibe for something more around the 150/160 territory; with its classic sample manipulation (think Todd Edwards after a huff of petrol) and a dicey, splicey jungle uplift this will sing to DJs of both 140 and 170 territories. Paranoid Inc should well live up to his name... After this everyone should be talking about him. All good things, mind.
