A startling bill makes up this one for Timedance. Reworks of Ploy's low-key, dubby squelch piece "Footprints In a Solid Rock" come from hero Beatrice Dillon, who dissolves the drums and heightens the dub, and Peder Mannerfelt, whose lurching techno experiments continue as he attempts to straddle his own punchy sound with the minimal leanings of Ploy. Aye!

Ploy's latest offers several shades of understated intensity, switching between stuttering, claustrophobic drum workouts, and snatches of atmosphere and space pulses. This record keeps the producers uncompromising dance floor approach up in dark style. More unnerving goodness from Hemlock Recordings.
Another percussive oddity... The opener keeps things on a subtle, shuffling drum tip, moving quickly to an ethereal brass lead arpeggio that wouldn't seem out of place in a Terry Riley composition. Then motion returns as strings of dread sit on a broken beat, and a dubbed out closer caps things off. Wicked.
Fresh young producer Ploy constructs some radical structures for the dancefloor on the Iron Lungs EP, ignoring convention in favour of following his own inventive instincts. He does some wild pitch-shifting on some finely-textured percussion samples, and is perfectly comfortable air-dropping a wall of breaks into a previously sparse track. Very interesting stuff; one to watch right here.
Hessle Audio get back in the saddle with this new 12” by Ploy, the first release under this alias since a 2009 EP for YAMAMA. Micro-beats skitter all over the surface of the title track, making the soundscape pleasingly unusual, though without compromising the all-important dancefloor rhythm that pulses beneath. 3 tracks, 12 inches.
