Review: Whenever we see Murder He Wrote return to Rhythm Athletic, we know we are likely to be in for a very enjoyable time, with this three track experience being no different whatsoever. We kick off with the joyous harmonic freedom we experience within 'Told You So' as Murder once again displays a solid sense of UKG arrangement, layering floating pad textures with intricate melodic slides and a jaw-dropping bassline, giving this one a massive yes from us right from the off. He sets the high quality bar and sticks to it next as the much more UK funky inspired percussive sweeps and choppy snare drives of 'Iso' up the intensity of the project almost immediately, especially when coupled with that looming bassline below. From here, the glittering melodic switches and breaks-infused rhythms of 'As If We Never' then push the bar out of the stratosphere as Murder closes out one of the most impressive three trackers of 2022 so far!

Review: Next up from the man with the plan, also known as Murder He Wrote, he returns to his beloved Rhythm Atheltic for a sumptuous collection of originals with the first volume of 'Icymi'. Across seven outstanding originals, we are able to enjoy the full range of MHW's full production arsenal, kicking off with the beautiful drum designs and shifting soundscapes of 'All I Ever Needed' and chased up by the fabulous vocal additions on 'Air' from Maddie Ellerby. From here, 'Too Late' sees more top notch vocal work from Chrystal, who this time plays the lead voice in another pad-heavy excursion few future-inspired UK-funky sounds, before the rattling snares of 'Loss' and squelching bass textures of 'Watch The Tempo II' add a bit more instrumental edge. Finally, we finish on some syncopated successes as 'Cuica' allows us to explore the true rhythmic skills of Murder He Wrote's production range, followed by a top quality finale in 'Denied', a carnival inspired combo of lively drum expressions and Roxy Sections' awesome vocal lines. Incredible work as always from Murder He Wrote!

Too Late
   
Too Late (part I) - (3:22) 123 BPM
   
Too Late (part II) - (4:00) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Murder He Wrote, Chrystal, Rhythm Athletic? What more could you want from a new school UK funky release?! What a fabulous link up we find ourselves exploring with this one as MHW returns once again to his home imprint to deliver a potent two track experiment by the name of 'Too Late'. Part one sees him deploy a vast array of colourful percussive lines and softened melody, over which Chrystal's heavenly vocal layers sit just perfectly. On the flip side, Part two sees a much more underground sound deployed as shimmering chord notes are left to drift into an icy soundscape atop glittering rhythms and more of Chrystal's chilling vocals. Amazing work as per from one of the most consistent producers out there right now!

Not Today
   
Not Today - (3:51) 134 BPM
Review: Next up on Rhythm Athletic, we see Murder He Wrote return to his incredibly rich run of form to deliver a stunning piece of experimental garage music, taking the title 'Not Today'. As far as compositional levels go, there aren't many people with a pallet as dense as MHW, who constantly finds himself unlocking unique pockets of energy within the different genres he works in, this new one being no exception to that as stunning layers of vocal sampling are deployed atop cloud-like synthesizer chords and charming drum skips. It's emotive and it's excellent, we just can't get enough!

Review: What a time it is for Murder He Wrote at the minute, who appears to be unable to put a foot wrong, judging by his recent releases at least. He here returns to Rhythm Athletic for a soulful helping of garage and funky goodness, kicking off with the stunning vocal collaboration with Jessica Wilde entitled 'Love', a track drenched in rhythmic flavour. Next, we leap into the more lofi arrangements and choppy drum structures of 'Loss', before finishing up the project with a look at 'Cui?-ca Riddim'. This one, despite being nearly impossible to say, is definitely one that needs to be heard, as MHE combines super smooth pad structures with lively funky drum work.

Review: Despite having a steady revival movement over the past couple of years, UK Funky has exploded onto the UK Bass scene over the past few months, influencing a large amount of underground music. Here we see one of the genre's leading lights in Murder He Wrote put forward a flavoursome four tracker, courtesy of Rhythm Athletic. We begin our journey on this one on a vibrant collaboration with Maddie Ellerby by the name of 'Expectations', which lays the blueprints for the rest of the EP with its classic funky flavours. Next up, 'Circles', a bluesy stripped back roller, packed with organic drum energy, before landing on the futuristic synth play of 'All I Ever Needed'. Finally we finish up the EP on the playful dub mix of 'Expectations'.
