Basic Rhythm
New Style EP

Despite spending the past couple of years focussing on getting his East Man project off the ground, Anthoney J Hart has still found time to put together some fresh Basic Rhythm material. This New Style EP is classic Sneaker Social Club fare, all retro-rave thrills and pirate radio fetishism. If you’re digging that Special Request aesthetic then this one’s definitely for you.

Basic Rhythm
On The Threshold

Anthoney Hart (East Man, Imaginary Forces) returns to the prestigious Planet Mu label under his Basic Rhythm alias after a short absence, with On The Threshold. A collection that promises to be a treat for DJs, it sprawls from drum’n’bass to jungle and hardcore on a thread of thoughtfulness and experimentalism. 

Basic Rhythm
Dough Boy / Can't You See

Up for some gritty grime haunted by the ghosts of pirate radio? Because London’s Basic Rhythm (a.k.a., East Man) has it in spades, as usual. Here it’s a pair of tunes for Arcola, housed in a swishly foiled, die-cut outer sleeve. ‘Dough Boy’ is massive stuff. You’ll hear the word “dough” many times. Flip ‘Can’t You See’ is just as muscular, but warmer and more generous with the pads. Fab stuff.

East Man
Red, White & Zero

Anthoney Hart - he of Basic Rhythm and Imaginary Forces fame - drops the first release of his East Man project on Planet Mu. Red, White & Zero is a whip-smart take on grime also incorporates elements of jungle, techno and hardcore, with an overall effect not dissimilar to the ‘ruff sound’ pioneered by Novelist and Mumdance. Features include Darkos Strife, Killa P and Kwam, while academic Paul Gilroy provides liner notes.

Basic Rhythm
The Basics

Basic Rhythm (another project from Anthony J Hart of Imaginary Forces) presents an engagement with the UK’s history of pirate radio, garage, grime, jungle etc. Rather than straightforwardly following any one of these styles, The Basics slinks around the back alleys, using bits and pieces as it sees fit. Vinyl LP on Type, limited to 500 copies.

Basic Rhythm
Slewage

Anthony J Hart AKA Imaginary Forces re-adopts his Basic Rhythm moniker for three tracks of apoplectic hardcore on Slewage. He mixes jungle, dark garage and dubstep to create some bin-troubling depths of sound. Slewage also includes a remix by US compatriot Rabit which tears it up even more. Limited edition of 300 on Type.

Basic Rhythm
Raw Trax

Raw is right: this collection by Basic Rhythm (aka Imaginary Forces) is full of sharp-edged, no nonsense hardcore. Remarkably for a release that dabbles in jungle and garage, Raw Trax omits the breaks, focussing instead on the samples and structures of the music that Mr. Rhythm loves. 500 copies of this potent dancefloor material, on Type.
