The shady U is a bit of a maverick. Not only because we still have no idea as to this artist's true identity, but also because he (or she!) travels from label to label with nothing but quality material. The producer is back on Phantasy Sound, and these two tunes are by far the best that we've heard from him. It's hard to know where the groove of "Friendly Ghost" starts and ends, but what we can say is that it's a deep and singular tribal tune with plenty of warm, hazy FX trickery, whereas "Ascension Hymn" bashes out the techno drums amid a woozy, hypnotic swarm of sonics that circle up and down with a startling, ritualistic sort of energy. A massive TIP, right here!
