Love The Cook. Where the grub is grubby and the tucker is tight. Building on the momentum of "Critical" on Lutetia Dubz last month, here we find the duo exploring their creative potential even further. "Petroleum" lives up to its liquid connotations as the ever-growing drums slink with water-drop reverberations and the pad-heavy groove ebbs and flows like a mild incoming tide. Deeper again, "Crescendo" shows the duo on a much crisper, tech-minded flex as a springy synthetic riff springs around the dynamic with a subtle sense of unpredictability. With the low-end mirroring this riff as the track matures, there's a great sense of development throughout as the title suggests. Tuck in!
Love The Cook - because those who feed us give us power and inspiration. Case in point: this incredible two-track debut on the ever-developing Lutetia Dubz. "Critical" is powered by a serpentine sub/kick combo that slithers with true menace as a well space rhythmic elements loop with hypnotic effect. "Tranquilo" is a darker recipe: weighty halfsteps stomp with treacle-thick drama while eerie keys hang pensively off bar. Sonics don't get much spookier - or tastier.
