Sounds Of Sumo have been working hard to establish themselves as a digital-only concern around the roster of Kry Wolf and Whole Sick amongst others, cultivating an up to the minute tributary of the bass music spring. Now their latest signing sees fresh skills aplenty dropping from CDBL, whose lean and limber update of garage reflects the times admirably, not least on opening track "Wake Up" with its catchy bassline and string-laden build-ups. "That Trick" does sneak some old-school breakbeat fun and games into the mix, as well as a light touch of Mo Wax beatdown atmospherics, whereas "Wanted" goes all out on the 2-step swing and some Tim Wright-esque electro grind. With a pair of remixes included for good measure, it's an all round winning package of contemporary beat science.
