Just when I thought Blueprint were releasing a 12” of 90s R&B edits. Nope, that world will never exist, instead we’re stuck in this hell hole where James Ruskin and Mark Broom come together and make excellent machine music. Goddamnit world.
These are effing great though, and I could be mistaken entirely -- these could be extremely contorted R&B tracks, who knows. The A side chronicles their meddling with a subby, bouncy, anti-4/4 beat that kinda reminds me of really dark garage by the way of Lakker. They weave shuffly clicks, warped recordings of various scratches and 2 repeated plucked notes in to lull you into primal ecstasy. Things get more straight over the page, with 4/4 kicks, shakers and a bassline squelching away happily. Disclaimer - this is not ‘happy’ music. This tune is ok, with a similar plucked sound coming in and a general churn to it. Not as good as the A but that’s difficult to achieve.
