Emerging drum and bass producer outta Bristol Crypticz has impressed in recent years with an opening bevvy of releases on the labels like Chris Dexta's Different Music and most recently Rudimental. Granted a debut record on Alex Eveson's Western Lore imprint (think Deadman's Chest, Thugwidow and Sonic) Between Dust & Time finds its passage through deep storytelling and wild production techniques. At 12-minutes long, "Broadcast Feeling" ventures through a soundscape of ambient bliss and liquid drum and bass rhythms punctuated by snippets of jungle and soundsystem culture. A hugely atmospheric release, the beatless arrangements on show here are as blissful as its rhythm sections are body moving, just like tracks "Journey Through The Rings Of Saturn" and "Nightshifter's Groove". Always dubby, Between Dust & Time focuses on high end rhythms, submerged basslines, and special kick drum design. The way liminal dub, drum and bass should be; frenetic and tribal that spans an ocean of ambiance.
