Uabos – Shadow EP [BAPXX7]

For his latest release on Bordello, Uabos builds on his past sound while folding new elements into his layered style. “Shadow” is the eponymous introduction, a track that sways between dawn and dusk, light and dark, as it dances between bright addictive keys and twilight tones. That search for contrast is carried into the thick beats of “Egoland”, beats countered by cascading notes that slip and slide from sweetened funk to devil-may-care debauchery. Industrial undercurrents and greying skies arrive with the Chicago inspired fuel that is “Elevator.” The curtain fall comes in the aptly named “Emotion.” A supremely powerful piece of snapping snares, full-bodied bass and cutting keys for a terrific finale for a terrific 12”.

Northern Powerhouse – Northern Powerhouse [NP006]

Northern Powerhouse kick things into gear on their sixth release with snarling and grizzly analogue bass on the A and machine heavy percussion and distorted tones on the flip. One for dark rooms and deafening sound systems
