ALSO – “EP03” – [R&S]
Also is Appleblim and Second Story from Bristol’s collaborative project. This is bleeding edge modern UK dance music where any ideas of conforming to a specific electronic dance genre is thrown out through the window and instead the attempt is to push boundaries left and right. This is their third EP with this moniker.
Raves has a nice shuffly drum beat with a hollow bass line and unexpected chord and melody changes. Blyford bass is a modern dance-floor fast track with deliberately over-produced drum machine patterns and gnarly sub bass sequencer with a subtle homage to Detroit techno. PGs is a more intimate track with evolving pads and lo-fi bass growls. This is a good example how electronic music in UK today is alive, well and moving into new territories.
