APRIL'S HIGH FIVE

EASTER IS UPON US! BUNNY HOP DOWN TO ONE OF THESE...
Bottom Out - Tessela - R&S

Less is indeed more. ‘Bottom Out’ works the minimal line hard; heavy phased snares, a hint of machine funk, rubberised basslines and space, a lot of space. Remixer Kowton gathers all the parts and squeezes out a slither more persistence. A superb example of two producers pushing the limits of the drum, snare and machine melody. ‘Total Music’ sees Russell deconstruct his sound further, eschewing direct drums and plotting rave abstraction and decay.

Bodied EP - Gunkst - Terrorhythm

Never a label to churn out the same old stuff, Terrorhythm releases material that often exists on the fringes. Denver resident, Gunkst, personifies this perfectly, delivering a kinetic blend of classic American EDM with plenty of trap and footwork notes, but with blurs of dubstep and some nicely leftfield vibrations.

Human Error EP - Social State - Gobstopper Records

Existing on the hypereal peripheries of grime, Mr Mitch and his Gobstopper label continue to flex. And this two-track EP is a superb example of coming different. ‘Human Error’ is a sloppy, drugged-up episode. ‘She Was Loved’ is like James Blake on Prozac. I like.

The Chronicles - Kenny Larkin - Rush Hour

Less a re-release than a bona fide public service, this repressing of tracks from Kenny Larkin's seminal 'The Chronicles' deserves a spot in everyone's collection. Perfection.
