Review: So it would appear that Through These Eyes have struck gold on this latest drp from Modul8, who pulls together a bag of very interesting themes across three super creative originals. We begin with the combination of reggae and jungle influences that appear throughout the constantly evolving arrangements of '2LB', followed by 'Strange Games', which utilizes an array of lofi melodic samples alongside crisp jungle breaks to create something very vibrant indeed. Finally, the title track 'Acceler8ed' unleashes a much more classic footwork sound, jam packed with lively percussive exploration and stunning pad textures. Excellent work!
Review: Honing in on, most specifically, a sound associated with a "160bpm" tempo, Through These Eyes for some five years now have pushed at the outer limits of footwork, jungle and half-step. This Omega release presents the label with its first compilation taking in tracks from more established acts like Sun People, Champion Sound and Digid to a cast of fresher faces like POLO LILLI, GPS Tony or Bassrael. Find some off the hook percussion in Yoofee's "Arrival" to the tearout bass and mechanical glitch sounds of ILL_K's "Persecution". Our tip: "Resilience (feat T-Man)" by Noh Vae.
