8/10 Clinton Staff review, 18 November 2011
Last time I reviewed something mysterious on Hotflush it turned out to be Mount Kimbie's excellent 'Crooks and Lovers' album. Here, despite initial snags (I can't read the sleeve properly, it won't play in our CD player) I am buoyed by the news that one half of this duo is the feller from Machine Drum, an artist I have long admired and whose 'Rooms' album on Planet Mu this year is well worth a listen. Even just a few bars in its easy to see why Hotflush have picked this up. Its slap bang in the highly listenable dubstep field with skittery energetic beats, cut up soulful vocals and shards of acoustic guitar giving a more organic feel to the proceedings. The first two tunes are very strong indeed - the usual comparisons can be wheeled out (Burial, Pinch, Zomby etc etc) but this is resolutely upbeat - tunes barrage along in a dancefloor filling type manner but it might be me being a misery guts but its at its best when the tempo is turned down and the sound encompasses a more pastoral, neo classical element such as on 'See Me Feel me' which brings in lovely breathy vocals. As on 'Rooms' there are certainly Chicago House influences on show but as the album wears on it seems to revel in the genre splicing to a greater degree creating an (oh yes I'm going to use the word ....you can't stop me) 'fusion' of gorgeous rhythms and haunting atmospheres. Impressive.
