Lee Gamble ushers us into his new spin-off label with 4 of his own productions. UIQ Inversions is apparently reserved for Gamble’s own work, which seems fair enough on the basis of Chain Kinematics: this is cutting-edge stuff, dancefloor dynamics absorbed into experimental frameworks and weird ambient textures. Yes yes yes.

- Chain Kinematics by Lee Gamble
Thunderous kick barrages and flashy white noise hihats adorn Lee Gamble’s new 12” on his new label UIQ with some new music on. Big news. Lets just clarify this right now: this is some hard stuff. The privileged A1 position is filled by a track called ‘004’ that launches straight into ~145bpm leftfield hardcore techno that’s like Clark on steroids. Some dusky, ghostly sort of chords throb into view halfway through providing a nice respite, before a mangled vox sample ushers the distortion back in. A2 is the creepy little brother of that one.
Over to the B side and the thump eases off a little, allowing some weird little playful synth lines to rise through. Once again that dusky atmospheric chordplay comes in again and it suddenly sounds like some ancient Aphex. B2 ‘Cnull’ is an experimental whirlwind of a banger. Hats and percs lathered with phasor FX decorate the muted 150bpm kick while various other sounds try to escape but crumble into noise. Chopped breaks imply jungle in the second half, but instead the track washes away noisily downstream. Noise.
