Review: Here we have been blessed with seriously futuristic dub style bass fusions as Moralz and Thomas B come forward for a truly innovative six tracker courtesy of the wonderful Free Love Digital. We begin with the expressive dungeon subs of 'Panic Room' before landing on the hardcore jungle blends of 'Return To Sender'. Next up the more spacey textures and expansive synth work of 'Folding Space' before we move into the super shuffled hip hop composition of 'Tethered'. Finally we step into the epic half time harmonics of 'Ouroboros' before finishing the project up in style with the more stripped back nature of 'Cross Rhodez', rounding off a very impressive body of work.
Review: Having been out of action since 2014, Thomas Wood has now released two notable EPs within a week. Thos five-track outing on JD follows hot on the heels of the Phiction Maker EP on Foul & Sunk. It portrays Wood as a versatile and talented producer, as capable of making dusty instrumental hip-hop (see "The Right Way") and warm, musically rich nu-jazz (the delicious "New Love"), as rolling deep house ("Somebody's Dancer", "Back To My Home") and hazy, peak-time grooves (swinging opener "What We Need"). All five tracks come laden with neat musical touches, as well as immaculately programmed and produced beats.
