Dark, dutty flavours coming straight out of Essex from upshot D Cult here for what is only the second release on Triangulum Recordings. The title track of this single is an exercise in repressed aggression. Synths sizzle and basslines tremor mercilessly in "Requiem" but this is all kept in hand somehow by the low slung, weighty rhythms and punishing subs that pervade the entire tune. Ice cold but deadly effective. "Woken" on the other hand, takes things on a deeper tip, with a spaced out intro, wavering, cooing synths and clapping, snapping snares setting the pace. An excellent release all round.
Teeza presents a most excellent four-track EP on the Triangulum label which is full of character. "B4 The Storm" is all jittering, white noise sprinkled synths, barking "heys", tense atmospherics and glitch beats, while title track "The Set Up" has a looser swing and an urban swagger. Up next is "Azkaban", ominous from the outset, full of leering bass, hissing hi-hats and plenty of menace, before "Intervention" finishes the EP with a shimmy of horns, lustrous beats and shuffling synth-heavy rhythms. Lovely.
