Rat - "Memento" (Audialist remix) - (4:50) 134 BPM
Review: Next up from the Deep Heads team, we welcome this tasty new selection from the one and only Audialist, a Swedish producer who is starting to bring his incredibly unique sound to the centre of the dubstep sphere. Through the sunshine chords of 'Serpent', clicking percussion of 'Keep Turning' and incredibly clean bass manoeuvres of 'Dead', he kicks this project off with a real touch of finesse. We then lean into the stunning harmonics of 'Urban Surfer', the dubwise drum and sub combos of 'Sleep It, Eat It, Drink It' and shimmering pad textures of 'Gone' to round off the original creations. He then gets busy of remix duty, giving a spacy UKG rethink to 'Same Kind' from Congi, Occult & Segilola, as well an unbelievable techy overhaul of Congi's 'Mesopotamia' and a highly rhythmic redesign of 'Memento' from Rat. Audialist is most certainly a name to watch in the coming months.
Review: Multi Music US have graced us with a very clever release indeed as Bayalien Sound System land with an instant impact across for electronic overloads. We begin with a dive into the title track 'Woolly Mammoth', a haunted hop hop roller, packing some serious high levels of organic energy, with the super distorted bass tones of 'Rio De Janeiro' and jittering rhythmic displays of 'Golden Lotus'. Finally, 'Dusty' provides another compositional switchup, building its arrangement around scarce triplets, with layers of authentic percussion providing the glue in-between. Lovely!
