- I Remain / Noboru by Zhou
Jesus, this is a strange record. Hyetal & Peverelist's 'The Hum'/'Rrrr' was probably one of my favourite twelves of recent times on this very label so I was curious about new signings Zhou. The flip of this baby ain't gonna get no fucker pulling shapes on the dancefloor as the track 'Noboru' seems to consist of pitch-black dark ambient frostscapery and cavernous dub ponderings with no beats, rhythm or tune. As a piece of music it is closer to Thomas Koner, Pole or even Pan Sonic with its foreboding intentions. 'I Remain' however is a masterful piece of brooding shuffling skank brandishing Mala-esque bass punches, a gorgeous bubbling synth loop and some proper sinister aquatic dub manoeuvres. Probably the strongest thing I've checked on this mighty Bristolian imprint for a while, both zen-like and eerie with tons of intricate detail, not to mention a propulsive disciplined drive that is aimed squarely at feet and minds.
