THE STEELYARD: WHEELS OF STEEL

The Steelyard is just what the capital needs...
Signal 3/Low Strobe - Pev & Kowton - Livity Sound

The ‘Livity Sound’ sound has really come into its own since it started as an outlet for Pev, Kowton and Asusu’s work back in 2011, and their latest plate, a duo of tracks from Pev & Kowton, reflects that. Sounding more confident and open to new permutations of sound and (probably) new machines, ‘Signal 3’ is brittle, creating a melody out of a delay whilst ‘Low Strobe’ flexes more low-end, relying on the brutish bass for effect.

Blue Knuckle - Fresh Paul - Hear Other Sounds

After receiving the files of Fresh Paul’s EP for Hear Other Sounds, I asked the email sender if it was “good?” I still haven’t had a response but I made my mind up that it is, all by myself. I like the execution. 

Truch - Sunchase - Med School

Hospital's little sister sure knows how to pick ‘em. No stranger to the scene, well-respected Sunchace sets out to soothe away worldly woes with this beautiful collection of downtempo tracks. Starting in the realms of minimalism, the intro creates a synth-led skeleton, the bass and beats as subtle and natural as a heartbeat, with a power and dependence to match. The track's brought to life by the silky, soulful vocal.

Spayce - andhim - Get Physical

Cologne pair andhim present the latest excursion of their 'super house' sound. And to be fair, for all its self-aggrandisement, it is pretty super. And it's house. So here we are. Despite spelling issues, 'Spayce' has got oodles of swing among all the bleeping electronica, a clattering anthem, layered with glorious noise. 'Domplatte' is a tad more understated, but it lacks not ambition. When the drums roll back in after each classy break, all becomes abundantly clear. Very good indeed.
