Sonder Somatic

After four years of building buzz via releases on labels like Timedance, Idle Hands and Livity Sound the Bristolian producer Bruce drops his debut LP via Pangaea/Pearson Sound/Ben UFO’s Hessle Audio. The one born Larry McCarthy has had a hand in the popularisation of the West Country soundsystem techno style that has made waves in the clubsphere of late. As such it's no surprise to find that the eleven tracks of Sonder Somatic hold bassweight and beats in perfect balance.

Bone Sucka

This heavy new twelve of oldskool breakbeat techno/hardcore/house schooled cuts by Kevin McAuley aka Pangea (also one third of Hessle Audio) goes out to all the suckers of bones out there - presumably various dogs. Despite quite a dark style, his scattered range of samples comes across as a little irreverent and cheeky. The title track is pretty irresistible in this regard, while b-side ‘Proxy’ is led by intense sequences of mutating piano tonk.

In Drum Play

Pangaea is the recording name for Hessle Audio co-founder Kevin McAuley. In Drum Play features skeletal techno which still bears the intensity of rave that has set maverick experimentalist McAuley apart over the last decade. The album mixes studio craft with the in-your-face sound of his club work to create a powerful and visceral yet cerebral work.
