Review: We were very hungry for another Chow Down seving, and how happy we were to see this brand new four track creation from Grizzle land in the store. We kick off with the explosive purple flavours and electric synthesis of 'Plasma', which combines grimey vocal slices and euphoric melodies to create something magical. Following this we have some more tasty ideas across the stripped back structure of 'Loosed' and the smooth, slightly slower harmonies of the title track 'Quinine'. We then finish up in real style across the stunning soundscapes and synth designs of 'Gauntlet', pushing the boat out even further into the wave genre.
Review: Liminal Sounds is a label based around the solid ethos of pushing music forward. Starting life as a blog, London based Liminal Sounds has focused on providing a platform for near unknown, underground artists from around the world; enter label debut from Grizzle. Doing what they do best the imprint has picked up a rough diamond on the cusp of widespread adoration. With a somewhat modest soundcloud following of just over 700 we believe this release will see that number rapidly rise. 'Consort' starts the EP with an emotive nod to to vocal r'n'b, a jittery trap like drum pattern and overly inorganic, Eski-type samples. 'Sermon' is dark and moody, the bass booms below a cold blanket of brooding atmospherics, while Tottenham man 'ShagyDread' brings an angry breath of fire to the beat, with his delivery which switches between grime, trap and dancehall throughout. 'Eleusis' pours in nostalgic memories of the days when grime was finding it's voice and beginning to split from UKG, cue plunking music box melodies and emotive pitched up vocals. 'Unmoor' finishes the EP with touch of melancholy, a mixture of seductive clicks and ticking snares make up the beat under rich string melody.
