Review: We were very excited when this one began to knock on our door as the magnificent Indigo Movement return alongside the futuristic 140 sounds of Aztek with his super 'Synesthesia' project. We begin with the airy textures and exciting movements of the title track 'Synesthesia', before it then gets dark and grimey on 'Sippy Cup' as grizzly synths and shuffling drums get to work. The vibes continue a plenty on 'Wide Eyed' with a stripped back composition and spooky stabs, before we finish up the EP with a look at 'Behind Enemy Lines', a classic grime shellout, complete with electric horn melodies and military drum marches.
Review: At this point, Bunzer0 has to hold some seriously legendary status as the dubstep veteran lands on Indigo Movement for two tracks of pure heat. We begin our examination of this one with a dive into 'Inbreeding', a piece of percussive masterty, with the melodies being providing by subtle drum taps above pulsating sub drives below. Following this, we then move into 'Accuracy', an unpredictable display of highly skilled production techniques, fusing dubstep and the unknown, leaving the listener blown away with every sub slap. Awesome stuff!
Review: 3 months on from their 5 year celebratory compilation, Indigo Movement are back with yet another high profile release, this time rolling out from Bristol?s own Chad Dubz. Built with intense, siren like drone synths and incredible electronic atmospherics, WW3 is more than a fitting name for this single. Along with this devastator of a composition we are blessed with two very creative remixes, the first coming from Zygo with dubwise rethink. The second comes courtesy of Gleb Choutov who rebuilds the track completely in a stunning piece of sound design. Great stuff!
Review: 2020 has been a pretty spectacular year for dubstep when it comes to consistency, with labels such as Indigo Movement providing us with non stop heaters all year round. This latest release sees Display unleash four potent scorchers, kicking off with the gnarly, grinding bass expressions and bright hi hat lines of 'Intuition', alongside the floating melodic structures and subtle sub designs of 'Temptation'. Following this, the title track 'Fractal' is unleashed in all its glory, driven by demonic bass pulses and sliced melodic influxes to add a real sense of eeriness throughout. Finally, the wonky percussive placement and unusual atmospheric textures of 'Plot Shield' adds that final dash of sauce to an excellent body of work.
Review: Wubba lubba dub dub! Duckem returns to Indigo Movement for the first time in what feels like an eon with this ace homage to Morty. Using lines from everyone's favourite intergalactic drunk granddad over a swampy hook to rhythmic effect, it's a wry blend that refuses to step over into gimmick mode. Looking for more alien sludge and slime in your bassline? Jump on Hitman's remix. Hmmmm, human music. We like it.
Review: Forslab for the people... The rising talent oft spotted on Dubtribu and Version Collective makes his mark on Indigo with two stark dungeon tales. "Beyond The Dawn Of Time" rumbles with a misty, eerie fog that creeps up but never pounces. File under pensive. "Returns To Ash" is a serious slo-mo hitter. Rolling on a spacious hip-hop style break, rather than a halftime arrangement, there's a great sense of suspense coded throughout. Forslab fortune.
Review: For this one we see the celebrated Indigo Movement make their return to releasing after a run of extremely well received drops. For this project they bring in the explosive production stylings of Grawinkel who gets to work immediately, sewing stepper flavours and intense sub designs precisely throughout the title track 'Ollie'. On the flip we are given 'Constant', a refined collaboration with Ourman. The pair provide some major heat on this one, which is driven by it's unpredictable stabbing lead bass sounds and subtle breaksy interludes.
Review: For us, the team at the Indigo Movement imprint were a clear standout across the course 2019, constantly updating the scene with truly innovative, stepper-influenced dubstep music. They have come to kickstart the year in style here as they invite MungK in for three tasty originals, kicking off with the shifting harmonies of catchy string leads of 'Kabuki'. Next, the classy, shuffling drum work, touching vocals and emotive string movements of 'The Saint', before the EP rounds off with a final touch of finesse throughout the choppy percussion and spacey atmospheric design of 'Komorebi'. Awesome work!
Review: We wade into murky waters on this brand new project from Indigo Movement as they team up with Qant for the Siberia EP. The selection kicks off with the 8bit driven glitchy rhythmics of '13_12' before rolling into a darker more spaced out territory as the unpredictable lasers and numbing subs of 'Alienated' take over. Following this we hear the scattered drum grooves and LFO expansions of 'Few Moments Later' before landing on the title track 'Siberia', a shuffling showdown, focussed on unpredictable syncopated percussive placement and haunting atmospheric synthesis. Excellent work!
Review: As we make a return to a more regular release schedule now that 2019 is truly alive and kicking, we are very pleased to see that forward thinking dubstep imprint: Indigo Movement have hit the ground running. This brand new project from Resykle boasts two absolute corkers, beginning with the flustered electronic utterings and twisted digital progressions of 'Component Riddim'. On the flip side the weighty pressure mounts even further as 'Deconstruct Dub' belches forth another array of dirty sub structures and industrial drum designs. What a way to kick off 2019!
Review: Indigo Movement's Athens/London connection goes from strength to strength. Now two years deep into the dance, they're celebrating with this immaculate collection of exclusives from their talented family. Label co-owner Bluez ensures their statement of intent is felt from the off with "Freedom". A surging sense of treacle-bass sludges out of the system over dramatic drums, it sets the tone for the alluring narrative that follows. Along the way expect to be gut-punched with carnal tribalism on Imanzi "Samburu Chant", expect to be chest-pressed by sub pressure on the authentic dub-style "Life" from Jeph1 and expect to be spun-out by the paranoia-inducing twists and textures of Fred Hassel's grimy "Callisto". An exceptional volume that represents the label at its highest level yet, Indigo Movement mean business - and they're here to stay.
