If you’ve been digging the whole ‘Weightless’ thing, then you should know the drill with these Different Circles 12”s by now - limited stamped copies that pretty much aren’t available beyond the first coupla weeks of release. This one is the first release where Mumdance & Logos have collaborated since their ‘Proto’ album.
On ‘FFS’ they deconstruct and reconstruct Grime in their own vision, where rhythms are disembodied and all sorts of stuff flys in, out and around in the mix. Beginning with plodding kick and hi-hat that gets swarmed in static and harsh distorted claps. An amusing pitched down, stoned sounding vocal sample relays a profound sense of disappointment "Awwww, c’mon mate" as the track collapses into a spacious vacuum where huge sub bass drops and blasts of noise sweep in, and then everything sounds like it’s being sucked back into the speakers, while some sort of shrapnel comes falling from above and elements appear to be ricocheting off one another.
‘BMT’ (Bacon Mushroom and Tomato?) begins with what sounds like a location recording from an airport before drums come flying in like gargantuan chopper blades that mutate in blasting jack hammer beats. It’s a really dynamic stop/start track with gongs, bells, searing noise and crackling electricity, as though the soundsystem was sizzling and sparking. It threatens to lock into a linear/loop techno track but quickly breaks down, swerving the obvious, and goes out with chiming bells.
Across both tunes they really play with space -- be it sparse or dense, with both being constructed on the skeleton/bare bones of Grime but really exploring the spaces between the standard rhythmic arrangements of the genre. Super pristine HD production too means these will both have guaranteed impact over a big system.
