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.
For many the name conjures a nostalgic scruffy bear, but for those who know, Bungle is the name of a brilliant Brazilian. The man just can’t produce anything other than excellence, no matter which sub-genre he dips into. ‘Alone’ is a rich tapestry of textures and layers, the undercurrent is a mix of deep, vibrating shuffles, with a slightly muffled break in the mid and with clean and crisp tiny bites of synths and samples at the top.
"This track has to be one of my favourites for this year so far. The bassline is so unique, it's mental!"
After meandering around a few labels since 2009, Submerse — the UK-born Tokyo resident — has settled with Project Mooncircle for the last couple of releases. This six-track release with three bonus tracks sees him further explore his penchant for rich, visceral electronic music from the flighty and saccharine to pensive and tranquil, but all wrapped in a well-crafted warmth.
