Presenting the third full length from UK producer Graham Luckhurst aka Greymatter, following his acclaimed 2014 Visions LP for Wolf Music. This LP is a more advanced expression of his love of sampled, lo-fi sounds and 'a step up sonically' from previous material. Luckhurst's broadened palette has seen him take in an wide range of music over the years, from running the legendary Mr Bongo label with founder David Buttle. As a result his DJ sets include varied selections ranging from London, Ghana, Rio, Chicago, Detroit, Lagos and beyond. Highlights include the dusty and emotive deep house of "Clocks", the rather Motor City Drum Ensemble influenced soul-shuffle of "Argon Lover" and the exotic broken beat experimentalism of "In Shade" which would make even John Roberts stand up and notice.
Greymatter's "Tesla" first surfaced on Wolf Music way back in 2011, but it remains one of the producer's more memorable moments. Boasting a notable female vocal sample, sweaty drum builds and a notably muscular bassline, it felt like a glorious homage to both Britain's warehouse party past, and the Junior Vasquez era. Fittingly, the latter influence comes to the fore on Black Fan's thumping Sound Factory Dub, which heads up this surprise remix EP. The fellow Wolf Music artist naturally utilizes the intoxicating vocal sample, weaving it in and out of a thrusting, Roach Motel style groove. Greymatter also delivers a Dub of his own, working his wonky but bombastic groove before going wild via spiralling synth lines and sweaty vocal cut-ups.
