Andy Pain & Z Connection - "Textures" - (5:49) 140 BPM
Andy Pain & Z Connection - "Transition" - (5:15)
Ready for some submarine levels of sub-soaked deep D&B? Then say hello to new Russian duo Andy Pain & Z Connection. Barely bubbling for a year and already the duo have amassed a large enough repertoire to necessitate an album. Sitting somewhere between the icy experimentalia of Bop and the grunting mechanic minimal of Xtrah, each cut here shimmers with space and seemingly bottomless grooves. From the triplet stumbles and far-away vocal of "Textures" to the more snarling, shin-splinting Octane & DLR-style bass roller "Murder", this is a very impressive debut long player.
