Quality two-tracker from London pair Swords & Sorcery. 'Rushing' grabs the sample from Bump's '90s classic 'I'm Rushin'', while 'Alchemy' brings some wild and untamed bass.
A result of a collaboration between Brit Lewis Bergen and North American electronic producer Taperecorder, the tracks came about by the now-common international file sharing creative process. 'Hoi Polloi' comes in two flavours, the first Lewis' own version and being a really nice atmospheric outing that balances ambient noises with a hefty 'oomph' really well. The other tracks point to a good working relationship between the pair and are definitely worth checking out.
Some people seem able to make any rushed session sound like one of the most vital things ever and that fast and loose approach pays dividends for Helix, as his three-track 12” for Templar Sound as DJ Vague showcases.
The FreQ lets Mr Bill loose on his drum & trap-step original, leading to a jerky glitch-garage reworking that somebody like Si Begg might have come up with. Looking forward to the FreQ/T-Power collab being worked on as we speak.
