Review: Context is on Eternal Muzic with a fiery six-tracker designed very much for the dancefloor. It's one of those EPs that you can tell was made with a good time in mind, music that's goal is to bring happiness to a room full of people. 'The World's End' is the first and it's also the fattest, with a giant, stabby bassline that launches out of the blocks with serious energy. 'Manifest' is glitchier and techier, its grating synths are full of momentum and the whole track just feels like it's on steroids. One of the bassface crew.
Review: Looking to all matter of classic D&B reference points, Context is an emerging producer given a chance here by Eternal Muzik to showcase a unique micro-style. With jungle rhythms the basis for Context to hang his basslines and progressions from, tracks like "Settle Down" are funkier in nature with its hip hop samples and melodious bassline. Find subtle R&B vocals ghosting behind the industrial swing and flashes of '70s dub in "Getting Grimey", while fresh liquid rhythms beefed up by the falling sequences and lowered tones in "Loving Me". Enjoy some lover's rock in "Big Player" - knees up!
Listening To Burial (feat Slof Man) - (3:23) 144 BPM
Review: Across this four-track EP we are treated to two original pieces plus remixes of the title track by Kid Smpl and Dark0. Kicking off with "Drowning", there's a strange juxtaposition of blissed out beats swimming in an atmospheric soundscape and curiously sonorous spoken word, which flits between street lingo and lilting song. Kid Smpl adds an urban edge with trigger clicks and a dubstep swagger, while Dark0 draws out the R&B edge to the vocal with hissing, clicking beats. "Listening To Burial (feat. Slof Man)" concludes the EP with more thought provoking words from the streets and a homage to Burial.
