That Shackleton and Mordant Music split 10" last year (I think) was a stroke of genius. The Mordant track was astonishing. So naturally I'm excited that they've got another split out... First up is the Shackleton side. You can recognize this guys stuff easily as he's honed his own sound and keeps refining it. El Din (Part One) has all his trademake elements is place. The eerie synths, spacious tablas and congas and the crucial fat bassline keeping it dark and deeply atmospheric with plenty of delay and reverb to get your rib cage rattling. My expectations of the Mordant track were particularly high after the recent effort and it's kind of a follow up tune drawing on a similar sound palate and groove. It's more of a techno tune than dubstep really although the lines are really being blurred at the moment which is always good. 'Olde Wobbly' is a real ass shaker with big full fat production sound - crisp and crunchy claps and snares and an ace arpegiated post-Moroder disco synth line. Phil is reminded of 'Sons of Fascination' and 'Sisters Feelings Call' era Simple Minds. A good 'un.
