Sumptuous chords, garagey vocals and tight Amen edits fight it out for space with fearsome percussion and off-kilter bass licks on this ravey effort from the South London duo. It's all about the filters and the fearsome junglistic energy.
"Guaranteed reload every time. Quel banger."
Detroit Swindle's rise to power has been impressively meteoric, and their flourishing Heist imprint is fast becoming a go-to label. Having got in on the ground floor, this three-tracker for Jimpster and Tom Roberts' Freerange is arguably the best material yet from Maarten Smeets and Lars Dales. 'Figure of Speech' has shuffling syncopation up the yin-yang, coupled with snipped Afro vocals. 'Victoria's Secret', meanwhile, throws in wayward, brassy synths like a boss. But it's 'Live at the Cosmic Carnival' that's going to do the damage. It rolls. And rolls. And rolls.
Amos return to Dispatch with their latest three-track single, headed up by ‘Oxide’ which employs the talents of Dutchman Fre4knc. The track, of course, lies in the heavier realm of our beloved spectrum and has a sense of regality about it — it’s dark, twisted and takes you to completely unexpected places. A techy toolshed stepper, bringing us all sorts of grinding, pounding metallic sounds, with itchy glitches and rumbling, stomach-turning bass drops.
