Here's an intriguing prospect: a collaboration between ambient and dub inclined Icelandic band Kura and Italian house/techno types Hunter/Game, under the previously unseen Landside alias. Happily, the fusion of the two outfits' different styles is a successful one, resulting in two highly evocative and atmospheric compositions. They begin with "Silence Before The Storm", a spacious, bass-heavy fusion of post-dubstep beats, drawn-out chords, woozy electronics and tumbling vocals. They move further towards the dancefloor on the droning 4/4 pulse of "Still There", whilst retaining the vocal-led, texture-heavy feel of its' predecessor. Remixes come from Max Cooper and Benjamin Damage, whose techno rework of "Silence Before The Storm" is a raw, brutal and hugely atmospheric.
