Acclaimed London producer Arkwright has already created quite a stir in the music biz with less than a handful of releases. Here the Rinse FM fave, makes his debut on Duploc, bringing fire with just two fierce tracks. The shadow of dubstep is naturally all over the release but never obscuring the music from its own unique sound. "Fool" is brooding and full of menace, with creepy horror melodies and tough echoing drums. "Networks" meanwhile is more sublime with dreamy synth washes layered to devastating effect. A truly new talent emerges.
Bona fide dungeon master from New Zealand, Headland makes his FKOF debut with four cosmic chasm explorations: "Break Out" rides on an alluring industrial texture most likely sampled from an oil rig in the furthest reaches of the known universe. "VHS Weather" takes us even further into the unknown with a woozy, seasick dynamic that's both paranoid and uplifting. "Trade Off" plays with the concept of space as the beats build with a roomier view, allowing the piped tones and waft through like thick green smoke. Finally we hit "Inflekshun". The swampiest side of the square, be prepared as deep washes of tones and textures coat you indelibly. Unique.
