Review: Well then, there is no denying that Kwaioto have unleashed a monster with this one as Cam Lasky lets loose his new 'Tokyo Year Zero: Occupied City Vol 6' collection. It's a weird and wonderful release that sees Cam explore many uncharted areas of dubstep, kicking off with the chilling vocal sampling and industrial drum designs of 'Tokyo Palace 1946', all wrapped up above a gnarly bassline, set to destroy systems around the world. Next, we witness the tense percussive lines and warbling LFO textures of 'In Monument To Loss' let loose, before finishing up with 'Another Name, Another Life', a fabulous piece of soundscaping with chunky bass instrumentation and syncopated rhythms all combining with a spooky undertone to deliver pretty incredible composition. This is one for the long play crew for certain!
Review: It's always good to see new music from Cam Lasky, who here lands on Kwaioto for the second volume of 'Carnivores', featuring three vibrant original stepper creations. We begin with the epic orchestration and feature-film like instrumentation of 'Forbidden Fruit', which come the drop descends into a haunted roller, before the shimmering percussive influxes and electrifying bass tones of 'Brute Cave' roll into play. Finally, the clinking rhythms and crunchy textures of 'Reproductive Abyss' see us out in style, putting the finishing touches on an extremely forward thinking dubstep project from Mr. Lasky.
