Review: We are always buzzing to see new music from Pharma, who hear sits down with Instigate Recordings to concoct a very saucy four track selection. We kick off with a look at 'Woodwind', a subtle humming masterpiece, spanning from Asian inspired arpeggiations and delicate drum designs to mystical flute leads. Next, the title track 'Shinto', a spacey adventure into dubstep's more swampy side, before the tight drum sounds of 'Paperboy' wash into the mix. Finally, we see Sedan join the party as the pair pull out their collaborative powers in 'Things', a very eerie journey through plucked instrumentation and subtle sub textures.
Review: Ah, there is nothing better than uncovering a dubstep compilation as potent as this, the second full edition of 'For The Heads'. We see an absolutely wicked line up, including the likes of 1137, Khromi, Roklem, Borg and more. There are some absolute heaters on this one, including the super crunchy bass movements of 'Extended Dub' from Dalek One, along with the minimalist yet metallic LFO drives of Repulsion's 'Cyclone' and Chapman's emotive 'Cry' original. One track stands out above the rest however comes from Pharma's super spooky 'Sshh' laced with enticing triplets to put the cherry on the cake for the whole compilation.
