Review: Now what we have here is an intriguing collection of originals, as we take a peek into the brand new drop from Glome Sound, who bring forward the experimental production styles of Brenner for two corking creation. The first of which is the title track 'Mirror', a timewarp of a production packed with hypnotic arpeggiators and unpredictable drum skips, creating some seriously unusual yet loveable themes. On remix duty for this one comes Dan Miles, with a lofi tech rethink. The second original goes by the name of 'Come Enthused', a convulsing creation, writhing left,right and centre with its unusual drum structure, followed by a super aquatic remix from Foi Oi Oi.
Review: Montr?al's Fill Spectre inaugurates the Glome Sound label with this slap-up bass excursion, offering us 8 killer bass experiments, each one of them rich in hybrid tendencies and explorative aesthetics. The opening "Distanced", for instance, is techno, bass and electro all at once, while "Save Me From Myself" manages to blend spoken word with industrialist drones, and "Faces Phasing" takes the two-step, off-kilter stutter to new and enticing avenues of sound. In truth, this is forward-thinking bass music that stretches previous notions of dubstep way out into an beautifully unknown territory. Don't sleep on this!
Review: We were very excited to see new music from Heritage drop this week, as the Brighton / London combo of Triblist and Agora join forces for three super original heaters, courtesy of Glome Sound. We kick off with the incredibly vibrant drum bounces and percussive intuition of the title track 'Snakes & Ladders', before the road darkens across the amazonian rhythms, well placed blips and subtle spaced out delays of 'Signal Path'. We then finish off the project with the super swampy 'Outside Contact', which again deploys super authentic percussive grooves to round off this EP with a real dash of finesse.
Review: Deep, menacing and forward-thinking are the names of the game here. KRSLD lands on Glome Sound with Tanker, an experimental garage and breaks release that combines the movement-orienated sound of two-step with the rhtythm of breaks music, the nonchalance of halftime and the depth of something a little more sinister. 'Dred' is full of, well, dread - tidal soundscapes ripple past in celestial fashion as spacious drums fill in the gaps. The title track is also outstanding, its rippling percussion and continuous suspense make it a joyous listen to and a thumping kick drum underpins a wider sense of impending doom. Very, very cool.
