raf & ill logic Complex Identities / Darkness At Noon (12", £1.75)label: bingo beats
On 27/10 / 2008 Zinc’s celebrated Drum and Bass imprint Bingo Beats, releases ’Complex Identities / Darkness At Noon’ the inital single taken from Raf + Ill Logic’s forthcoming debut album ’Darkness At Noon’. Note that the vinyl LP will be released minus this disc, but with room enough to accommodate it, encouraging collectors to complete the full set of 5 discs. ’Complex Identities’, which is backed with ’Darkness At Noon’, eschew drill-and-bass for an altogether more liquid experience, conjuring imagery of the entitled tracks in the listeners eye. The beauty of these tracks is that whilst there is a wealth of enjoyment to be derived at home or on your iPod from the lovingly crafted bass-lines, scuttling hi-hats and intricately layered textures; a strong duality exists in the altogether more carnal immediacy of the tunes which come alive on the dancefloor. It’s this rare balance which caught Zinc’s ear. As one of the worlds most respected DJ’s he has been able to road test their productions to crowds across the globe and the results mirrored his own excitement at hearing the duo. So after the huge acclaim and success of Bingo’s last artist LP release (Jenna G’s ’For Lost Friends’), it is Raf & Ill Logic’s liquid production which carve the next tributary of Bingo’s journey through "Drum & Bass" in the loosest, most diverse sense of the term. This is the two track introduction to something rare, something special. Behold "Darkness At Noon".
