Kowton - Looking At You (Keysound)
Written at a time when UK Funky ruled the airwaves, 'Looking At You' is a
sophisticated take on the genre, referencing the off grid drum patterns and
vocal chops while maintaining a sophisticated level of reserve and using a
different sonic palette to the average funky track. This is Kowton at his
most unrestrained and melodic since 'Stasis'. Comparing it with any of his
recent work would be unfair as it was written nearly 3 years ago.
Dance music, by its very nature doesn't tend to age
well this is one of the exceptions to the rule. While the disposable
tracks that influenced it have faded from memory, 'Looking At You', after
being cooped up on the Keysound computer for 3 years, is finally available
and sounds fresher and more relevent than ever.
Tessela - D Jane (Punch Drunk)
160g of uncut West Country power...2 slabs of highly percussive pressure
designed for the dance. Fitting somewhere in between the delicate drum work
of Joe and the unbridled bashyness of Untold, this is choice gear...use at
your own risk!
Artifact - Deserted (Deadplate)
Artifact arrives in fine style on his first physical release on the
sonically and aesthetically on-point Deadplate label. Deserted is a low-
slung ride through bristling filtered pads, brusque snare rolls and
distorted 808 kicks, deftly sidestepping the trappings of the 'bass muzak'
cliche, creating a track that would sound more than at home being banged out
the open boot of a Cadillac.
A solid start to what promises to be a very busy year for Artifact and the
label. Deadplate are leading by example, putting cutting edge dance music on
wax while a large number of their peers are content with churning out
endless digital releases
