Some bass artists aim straight for the dancefloor, but some craft new forms of art within the boundaries of the genre. Pete Saturn (aka Owl) is the latter. The Coola #6 EP is his debut for the Foundation Audio label and features 3 supremely deep jams to get lost in your head to. "Zoon" kicks things off with ominous, crawling rhythms and atmospherics, while "Coola #6" edges towards dubstep, featuring slithering and restless beats. Lastly "Allia" is a completely different of fish, featuring slo-mo beats and recurring blissful melodies. Gleb Choutov also reworks the title track into a creepy, snarling, caged beast of a workout.
More deep dub science from Mr Saturn as he makes his debut on Instigate with a cheeky bag of "Ritual Grass". Spacious, detailed and restrained yet precision weighted for the deep head floors, both cuts soothe just as much as make you move. "Ritual Grass" sways with a heavy dub techno feel as simple chords flutter and fly between the anchor kicks and FX. "Dawnlight Riddim" reaches with more of a mystic message as smoky atmospheres hang deep over the bubbling beats and woozy horns. Exemplary.
