Always nice to see Planet Mu keeping busy. This week they're serving the debut from The Host - a semi-mysterious artist  - in the sense that I have no idea who's behind the pseudonym. Guess it ain't all that important, it'll become apparent soon enough as this dude's got summat real nice you'll most certainly wanna hear. As soon as I dropped the needle the first thing that came to mind was Kuedo's 'Severant'...and I know you dig that good shit! We're talking backwards-compatible electro music that takes it's cues from modern beat genres (referred to as 'net-age genres' by the oldies at Planet Mu) and filters it back through classic hardware for the real human touch. This guys got a real nice feel to his productions. The beats are pure Kuedo...plenty of 808 with those skitterish super fast 16 beat hi-hat grooves and crisp snares, but it's the synth work goes way beyond, with an evident respect for the analogue masters of old at the forefront of his work. Loads of beautiful, oceanic synths tones and tropical delay saturated arpeggios. I can hear all sorts, from sleazy 80's synth solo nonsense to thuggin' DMX beat workouts, taking in a bunch of crazy-dark cold wave shit along the way. It's a big one this so I'll say no more. A few more listens and it'll occur to me that this is just probably just Dubstep innit.
