mutated forms Ready When You Are EP (double 12", £4.55)label: Grid Recordings U.K.
4 avant-garde numbers from this Estonian production outfit, who since signing to Grid Recordings in early 2009 have started to create quite a stir within the Drum and Bass world. Each track to find its way out of their studio has shown a different dimension to their sound, and the trend continues with this release. Support from Grooverider, Bailey, Dieselboy, DJ Marky, London Elektricity and Fabio are testament to the diverse appeal of their music. Centuries is a jazz-tinged roller, with tight, snappy beats and a punishing no nonsense workout with diving bass stabs. Ready When You Are is one of those tracks you feel in your chest. A high pitched amen workout gliding tightly over a sliding, mutating bassline, with the calm before the storm setting you up for the drop. Lucid Dreaming wastes no time, throwing you in at the deep end. After a short introduction this one is all about the bass, aimed squarely to get the dancefloor shaking. High Sines Low Claps is the most experimental cut from the EP, with this half time track slowing the tempo right down. Featuring a neat hip hop vox, slamming beats, rich distorted bass and lush pads, it rounds off this varied collection.
