Walking With Shadows / AHH FFF SSS

Pinch here with some classic fare for Swamp81 offshoot 81. A-side ‘Walking With Shadows’ is a slow reveal - skulking in with ghostly atmospherics and a needling percussion line, it soon blooms into the kind of meditative post-techno banger that Loefah’s label has become synonymous with down the years. On the flip, ‘AHH FFF SSS’ is a tuff bit of post-Eski that comes close to the stuff Pinch has been putting out on his own Cold imprint in recent months.

Threats EP

Notoriously brief UK techno label Swamp81 put out another 12 from MC Chunky (Hank Del Chunkus to his friends) under their sublabel 81. Didn't even realise swamp needed a sublabel. This time round things get nice and shuffly with garage and grime elements, basslines leaning towards that throbbing dubstep sound and if that wasn't enough, it's bundled with a bonus 2 track 7". One hundred trillion dollars.

Mickey Pearce

Mickey Pearce (aka Shortstuff's Richard Attley)'s debut album is a mixed affair. Whilst a lot of the tracks here inhabit the familiar post dubstep landscape we would expect them to, there are others which veer downbeat, some optimistically and upliftingly so, and others with a dark kind of edge. Expect the unexpected.
