Review: Rhythmic Theory makes his debut for Happy Skull with two of his darkest, otherworldly productions yet. "Decadance of Delay" is an unflinching sprint into techno-jack territory, all distorted machine rhythms, hallucinatory whispered vocals and hypnotic electronics, while "Endocrine Creeatures" is a dystopian blast of 808 electro built around titanium-clad kicks, snappy snares and rippling acid lines.

Review: First emerging in 2012, the producer known simply as Rhythmic Theory has become ingrained into the latter day scene in Bristol thanks to a series of club ready 12"s for labels such as BRSTL, Idle Hands, Happy Skull the eponymous imprint the anonymous artist oversees. This second release for Idle Hands demonstrates once again that Rhythmic Theory is fully capable of switching up her/his sound from 12" to 12", with the focus here seemingly on channelling Junglist vibes into a dub techno approach. It's best displayed on lead track "Endless Forms" (a riff on Roni Size perhaps?) which is pushed forth by a weighty bass line, crunching kicks and a titular vocal hook - this one needs to be heard on a big rig! Complementing it is the gloriously murky "Tales of Dystopia" which hints Rhythmic Theory has a keen understanding of '90s UK techno, though the swung percussion makes it feel very contemporary.

Future Tense (October's Death Is Certain dub) - (8:11) 126 BPM
from $1.95
Review: The adventures of Bristol's premier techno-jungle fusionist continue unabated as Rhythmic Theory returns once more to Idle Hands with a razor sharp vision of pitch black contemporary system sounds. As ever the jungle references are far from obvious, sneaking in through subtle synth tones and overall demeanour rather than anything as obvious as an amen break, and "Future Tense" brings the heat in a most stripped back, malevolent of ways. October follows suit with a sly version that champions the spirit of the original while weaving in a little acidic magic and some additional icy dread for a thoroughly compatible version.

Review: After two debut releases for the Ancient Monarchy label, the UK-leaning cousin of Berceuse Heroique, it was about time that Rhythmic Theory branched onto other labels and ventured new horizons. Idle Hands from Bristol is as far as the artist is willing to go for the moment, but it seems like a fitting destination nonetheless. Many 'bass' labels and artists seem to have gone 'ambient' these days, but this particular release by RM is both fresh and interesting. Throughout the seven segments of sound, the artist manages to make sense of the beatless moments, wrapping subsequent tunes with beats into its abstractions. This is a fine piece of futuristic, beat-driven dub for the mind. Check it!

Review: Ancient Monarchy welcomes back the darkly beats of Rhythmic Theory for a second time following the Bristol producer's Lucid State / Shores of Caladan 12" which opened the Berceuse Heroique sub-label's account last year. It's dropping around the same time as Parris' debut 12" on AM (don't miss that) with Rhythmic Theory still reeling from releases on Idle Hands and Blackest Ever Black's A14 imprint. This four-track EP serves up two syncopated techno cuts - "Travelling Without Moving" the hit - with "The Bends" simmering the bass in compensation for some extra reverb. The two beatless cuts veer into ambient dub techno territory with strokes of trance and rave thrown to not upset Echospace.

Review: Once again Bristol's Idle Hands have come up trumps with another release of locally sourced talent in the form of the third record from the anonymous Rhythmic Theory. The producer debuted last year with Twilight Distinction, a release for the BRSTL imprint that showed the mystery entity to have a knack for creating deep, viscous loop techno in the Skudge mould. Rhythmic Theory's Idle Hands release is something a little different; described by the label as "deeply indebted" to jungle and D&B, "Land Of The Lost" fleshes out its deep techno skeleton with powerfully oscillating low end, while "Riveted" takes a syncopated, shackling rhythm and combines it with cavity-vibrating, jungle-inspired sub-bass.
