Copout stomps his way through the bass works with a follow up EP after his debut on Freshmore, this time for the neo-grime outlet Liminal Sounds. There's four sweltering bass hoppers on here, starting with the gutter-friendly "Further", then bringing forth the percussive beat muscle on "Slate", going across pacman sounds on "Timecode", and ending on a moodier reprise mix of "Further", a serious piece of pensive bass weight for the corner dwellers. Bash 'em!
Liminal Sounds associate Copout bursts through Purple Tape Pedigree like a man with a mission...and with four devastating firebombs that cover all sorts of bass spectrums. "Helix" opens with a pseudo grime swagger, only to be swallowed whole by the more electrifying industrial weight of "Stressed". "Fallen" is pure UK bass, a tune that refuses to find any one genre and instead shifts and morphs continuously; this is followed by the eerie presence that is "Enough", a rather foreboding sort of tune that only the heads will appreciate on the dance floor.
Liminal Sounds come correct with their first multi-artist collection. Each contributor representing the blistering future of instrumental grime and bass music, each cut is a refreshing take on one of the dance's most exciting creative pastures... Copout gets Amazonian with a be-fluted presentation of pressure, Shining Force takes us on a late night graveyard tour being sure to throw us through the thickest of sonic cobwebs, Archer strips the vibe back with a sturdy steppy brew, Bushido takes us on a one-way trip into an intergalactic warzone while JGYB does a fine Proxima impression as he lays down the wriggliest, tech-heavy sermon of the session.
