8/10 Ant Staff review, 07 April 2016
This is a pretty tasty 4-track EP from Gavin Russom on the ever reliable Swiss label Lux Rec. Landing just before his Black Meteoric Star album lands on Traxx’s Nation imprint, these tracks wouldn’t be out of place on that label.
Opening with the sweaty EBM infected ‘In Wolfskins’; a tool that’ll keep the momentum going on any worthy dancefloor -propelled by gnarly bassline, bleeps and blasts of explosive bomb-like electronics. Then we get the dystopian black, gaseous synthscape of ‘Let The Bones Speak’ before ‘Blood Codes’ kicks in to re-ignite the party; with steady stomping kicks, galloping metallic percussion and squidgy bassline building into a proper nasty, tunnelling, hypnotic voodoo groove.
‘The Shelter of Palms’ gets busy with a mutating, zapping acidic bassline and rough ass distorted drum fills - pure filth! Pick any of the three dancefloor cuts and observe the grinding of asses or your money back. (Disclaimer: In the unlikely event that no asses are grinding on the dancefloor - Norman Records accepts no responsibility).
