After first appearing in Belgian label Pelican Fly on a compilation last year, Samename is back with a full EP on which to show off a crossover sound that brings in elements of Eastern mysticism to collide with sleek modern production skills. The bass is monstrous on "Sakura", even if the melodies are delicate and fluttering. "Nuriko" is more malevolent with its hectic grime moves and jarring elements, while "Shinigami" shows off just how many layers of percussion Samename can juggle into a deadly, precise bomb of a track. "Gishki" takes a sparser route into grimy throwdowns, using plenty of curious found sounds to decorate the bin-busting b-lines and snapping claps.
