With a burgeoning imprint behind them in the form of Shades Of Grey, Elson David debuts with the combined talents of Owen Howells and Duct, and it's clear from the opening tones of "God Bless" that they share a canny understanding of the modern machinations that make up prime time rave business. The crisp, digital sheen of their snapping beats move with the kinesis of techno while alluding to the bump and grind of garage, shot through with a fondness for crafty sample deployment and sharp edits. "The Awakening" wriggles its way into a more rubbery groove, largely defined by the acidic bassline, while "Woke" slips into a more jacking jaunt into 303 damage.
