Sub-Liminal solider Mentah continues to dig deep into his craft as he unleashes two more disturbingly heavy workouts. "Shadow Of Doubt" is a real grumbling, bone-shaking rattler with a warped bassline that echoes with deep unease. "Autoguns" fires with more of a laser-lashed edge as rough metallic bass textures groan with alien aggression. Both hitting that sweet spot between tech and dancefloor with serious attention to detail and dynamics, these kill it... Undoubtedly.
Young Worthing warrior Mentah continues to go loco in the Sub-Liminal kitchen cooking up no less than five fiery courses. Five! Each dish is a feast in itself, loaded with gruff groaning basslines, swinging drums and precision dug samples. Those with a penchant for gluten will fatten up nicely on the moaning bass tones of tracks such as "Can't Fool I" and "The Rules", those looking for a little citrus zest will be all over the electrical buzzy tones and block snare bumps of "Clear" while those who go straight for dessert should lap up the sweet treacle bass of "If You Need A Name". More? Look no further than the EP title track "Orders To Move". Grills set to murderation, this is cooked to perfection.
After a string of slamming EPs, Sub-Liminal mainstay Mentah delivers his debut album and it's a powerful piece of work. Punchy and concise at nine tracks, the focus is fully on the floor and hyper-charged with an on-point modern jump-up hybrid sound. The type of cuts you can imagine Randall playing at Breaking Science, 4am, the basslines wobble, the textures drone ominously, the riffs never get too OTT and they all seriously hurt! Highlights include the Benny L style swampy bass on "No Disrespect", the nan-slapping foghorn heaviness of "Alone In The Light" and stinking distorted tripletty finale "Grudges" but that just not even half of this universally heavy tale. Big up Mentah.
