Review: It's always good to see new music from Cam Lasky, who here lands on Kwaioto for the second volume of 'Carnivores', featuring three vibrant original stepper creations. We begin with the epic orchestration and feature-film like instrumentation of 'Forbidden Fruit', which come the drop descends into a haunted roller, before the shimmering percussive influxes and electrifying bass tones of 'Brute Cave' roll into play. Finally, the clinking rhythms and crunchy textures of 'Reproductive Abyss' see us out in style, putting the finishing touches on an extremely forward thinking dubstep project from Mr. Lasky.
Review: We are blessed here with some serious stepper flavour as Cam Lasky steps up on Kwaioto for his Shinonome project. We are gifted two absolutely storming originals and a fantastic remix to celebrate the 14th edition of Occulted City. Kicking off with 'Assassin Ogress', a swampy ode to galvanizing sub weight and crunchy percussive movements. This leads perfectly into 'Dark Katana' which utilizes aggressive orchestral drum rolls intertwined with choppy bass synths, eerie atmospherics and growling reeses to create some serious tension. On remix duty, Babie GION steps up with his spacey 'Geisha Calm' revamp of 'Assassin Ogress', rounding off an impressive project with real finesse.
Review: Kyoto representing: after almost a decade in the dub game Kwaioto bossman Cam Lasky unleashes his most ambitious project to date Occulted City. As you'd expect from one of the most consistent bass labels to emerge from the east, it's a rich tapestry of rolling percussion, molten tones and textures and dynamics. Highlights include the iron foundry clangs and low end bangs of "Embodiment", the grime flare and fury of "Firestarter", the woozy graveyard semantics of "Quiet Obsession" and the timpani teases of "Enchantress". Fantastical fire.
