Alberta, Canada's Homesick has appeared previously on Philthtrax, Phyla and Ground Mass Music and is back on Philadelphia's Seclusiasis. The label run by Starkey and Dev79 and has previously fronted up with Knight Riderz, Rusko, NastyNasty and Murderbot to name but a few. On the Legendary EP it's certainly a wonky and street level affair from this fledgling producer. He starts off with the deconstructed drum and bass of "Our Storm" which transforms the UK street sound into a warped footwork affair. It's more of a grimey dubstep affair on the rather brooding ghetto technics of "Legendary", while "Don't Look In The Trunk" again takes to creating a fresh rendition on British underground music, tearing apart the retro sound of jungle from yesteryear and starting again, rather convincingly.
Modern Ruin feels like the perfect location for Homesick's twisted, dub-filtered, strain of footwork and these four smoking guns are the perfect thing to turn your Saturday night from fun to a little nuts. "Environment Standards" uses a sort of acid house, big piano approach in its groove, while Carnivore VIP is a juke reinvention of jungle, where breaks fly around loosely in a sea of percussion and sonics. "VIP Rave" is the craziest of them all, with a broken bass drum rhythm guiding sinister melodies forwards; Sinistarr Ravegod's remix of the same tune is similarly jagged but here the artist injects a new, more violent flavour of bass.
