Al Wootton

   
Baccata - (4:19) 137 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Alder - (5:45) 137 BPM
   
Maenads - (5:57) 144 BPM
   
Ashe - (5:40) 62 BPM
Review: In all honesty, we feel that the musical successes of Al Wootton have gone somewhat under the radar, with his consistently impressive productions always leaving us with a smile on our faces. This brand new four track collection alongside the team at Trule kicks off with some interesting percussive work on the vibrant sounding 'Baccata', before 'Alder' combines more fluttering drum designs with a steadily shifting sub-bass pattern below for a really eerie feel. Following this, 'Maenads' feels like the evolution of the previous track with a lot of similar rhythmic patterns being deployed, this time with an overall punchier feel, before slowing the pace significantly on 'Ashe', a downtempo display of introspective calm to round us off in style.

JL (original mix) - (6:00) 64 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
JL (Priori Sharp Tool mix) - (5:44) 136 BPM
Review: As always with Al Wootton, we went into this one with our ears wide open, keen to hear what levels he would be taking the UK underground sound to next. As far as two trackers come, this one is pretty darn juicy, with the title track 'JL' proving to be a perfect fuzzy sweeper, driven by a constantly pulsating synth sweep and some truly remarkable drum processing alongside a heavily affected vocal line. The project also comes complete with a high energy, kick-heavy rethink of the track from 'Priori Sharp Tool', who gives the original a completely new lick off paint with fabulous results.

Review: The Livity Sound Recordings team seem to have unearthed a gem here as they welcome the sounds of Al Wootton, one of the most creative bass music producers out there right now. This EP demonstrates that fantastically as we kick off with the rumbling subs and intricate drum work of 'Ender', a post-garage-inspired thrill ride filled with the unexpected. Next up, the shimmering snare expressions and subtle breaks influences of 'Revin' roll into view, before the stunning soundscaping and unorthodox percussive panning of 'Snake Dance' arrives in style. Finally, the choppy delays and minimal, stripped back rhythms of 'Lerzin' add the perfect addition to a very well thought out selection.

Review: Next up from Al Wootton, we see him unveil his latest LP, showcasing his eccentric yet delicate approach to bass music down to an absolute t. We kick off with a look at 'Come Close', which gives the classic dancehall triplet rhythm an electronic update, before the warbling synthesizer throws and minimal drum clicks of the title track 'Witness' arrive in style. Next, 'Gloamer' combines bouncy drum patterns with reverberated atmospheric pressure to deliver a spacey experience, followed by the sub-busting basslines and nostalgic chord flexes of 'Over' alongside the high tempo drum expressions of 'Sema'. From here we then take in the meditative delays and pounding rhythms of 'A Clean Heart' followed by the darkened breakbeat rolls of 'Starlite Xpress' before finishing up with the groovy rhythmic twists of 'Cephas'. What a project this is!

Review: In aid of climate change and deforestation, Needs for a seventh time keeps its focus on the environment with all profits of this release donated to Cool Earth UK. Indeed this time the label calls upon the slamming grooves of Telephones in the atmospheric "Groundshaker / Lightbreaker " alongside some minimal space pong and 808s from Ciel. Lo-fi garage, amen breaks, cut up vocals and bassline grooves to boot in Elphino's "It's Hard To Say" with Al Wooton going all subterrain and urban dub on your ass with "Raphael". Keep it clean!

Review: All matter of Deadboy dubs here from Al Wooton, turning in four new echos for the everfresh Trule. Presenting the label's first 2020 release, housey chords wander in pastures of flowing dub in "Operator" with deeper minimalisms and pitfalls that flirt with the abyss in "Teresa". Straight up two-step madness in "Levi" with minimal as f*ck drums leading the way in "Franz".

Review: It's an exciting sight to witness a new Al Wootton drop hit the JunoDownload shelves, with this releasing really living up the expectation as the man himself delivers four bad boy originals, courtesy of Trule. We kick off with pounding sub-lines and subtle breaksy influences of 'Body Healthy', before landing on the incredibly delicate popping percussive brilliance of 'Graver'. Next we dive deeper underground as the minimalist breaksy tones of 'Bad Sound' leap into play, before we round up the project with a peek at 'Prophecy', another super well designed garage-ready roller.

Power Must Change Hands - (6:12) 130 BPM
Review: We are very excited to get stuck into this new selection from Al Wootton, who touches down on Trule with a bag of creativity and originality laced between three smashing original designs. The title track 'Natural Forward' is a breaks infused monster, pulling together some incredibly unique drum patterns and wavy atmospheric layering for a super groovy piece of bass music. Next up, 'Rahma' arrives with a bag of bouncy energy, from its dubby chord delays to its shimmering drumwork, before we finish up with a look at 'Power Must Change Hands', a lively housey number, putting the finishing touches on a wicked selection from all involved.
