Dawl – Beyond Low Earth Orbit [UTTU119]


Since debuting as Dawl nine years ago, Tone Dropout co-founder Darren Woollard has become one of the most trusted producers of revivalist ’90s fare, with a trademark sound that mixes and matches elements from various vintage styles of techno and electro. That attractive, mind-altering personal sound is much in evidence on this EP for Unknown To The Unknown, which wholeheartedly pays tribute to the turn-of-the-’90s Yorkshire bleep & bass sound. Those versed in the style’s history will notice a few knowing winks to various underground classics – the title track sounds like an unreleased track from Richard H Kirk and Rob Gordon’s short-lived XON project, for example – while the important ingredients (deep sub bass, alien bleeps, unfussy house-tempo techno drums and crunchy hardcore breaks) are all present and correct.
