Low-key EP of melodic club music courtesy of producer Wen. The six tracks of Senary Cycles move through near ambient spaces and into a range of rhythmic approaches, from straightforward to subtly lurking to UK Funky. Plenty of talent on display here on this double 12” release on Soundman Chronicles.

Wen is one of those grime artists that has been pushing the definition of the genre the last few years, and definitely upping the ante when it comes to production. Future grime? Let’s not go there. Not again.
It’s nice to hear some of this stuff with an introspective feel instead of waving a metaphorical knife in your face. The synths bubble and shine, the beats are crisp and clear, knocking out shuffly rhythms that lie somewhere between grime, UK bass and dubstep. I guess there’s always been a grey area between them, but it’s perhaps a grey area less explored. There’s a sheen of glorious ambience that’s close to Synkro, who coincidentally was just playing in the office. Coincidentally.
