about

Opening up the first of two Wicker & Steel remix EPs is CLR’s Tommy Four Seven, a producer whose own debut album came out to a great response earlier this year. Tommy switches Start Chopping’s 4/4 rhythms for his own broken beat foundation and adds a whole new world of bass to the track. The original’s pads echo around the soundscape as each break brings back a tougher version of the beat.

Next up are Warp/Dust Science/Soma legends The Black Dog. Keeping Gonkle’s beating heart in place they add subtle synths lines and pads to add a melancholic edge to one of Wicker & Steel’s tougher tracks, without ever losing any of the original’s impact.

On the flip-side we witness the first collaboration between London producers Sigha (Blueprint/Hot Flush) and Truss (Stroboscopic Artefacts/Perc Trax). Combining their love of techno with a bass music mentality the duo serve up a jackin’ semi-broken groove topped off with all manner of drones and rhythmic effects.

Finally ASC, one of the stars of Instra:mental’s Nonplus stable makes his Perc Trax debut, cutting up the now familiar industrial drum assault of ‘My Head Is Slowly Exploding’ into an Autonomic style 170bpm stepper. A move away from the typically smooth Autonomic sound this is something completely new. Industrial –tinged D&B that is a world away from the apocalyptic No U-Turn sound of the mid to late 90’s.
