"Late night killer beats."
"I'm surrounded by hipsters / What does that say about me? / Hipsters love independent movies / Shit, I love independent movies / Actually, I just like independent movies / So I think I'm cool there" — amusing, broken-up and horizontal slice of first-world anxiety from HS and Stones Throw. New album 'Hallways' due soon. Don't sleep.
Neat little roller with its main draw distinctly in the low-end. The drums are fresh and zesty-sounding, acting as a foil to the warm and enveloping bass; like an enchanting siren it lulls you into its dark midst.
This is brooding Swamp 81-style broken beat bass music, 21-year-old Derbyshire producer Jack Mackmersh dropping booming bass, cool percussion and a pitched-down rap vocal refrain over complex, intelligent drum work on lead track 'Whip It', then following up with the equally darkcore-flavoured rudeboy alt-grime of 'Crater Face VIP'. This free EP on Bear Fresh seems to improve at every listen, a rare achievement.
