RIYL: Bass music
Label: Mistry Muzik
Naturally, a lot of music comes out every single year and the reality of this is only amplified with humanity’s near-universal access to the Internet. Even now as I write this measly article, many Bandcamp releases are getting uploaded in to numerous unexplored crevices of Bandcamp and on top of that, many of those won’t see a single play from a stranger. Gaunt’s foreboding electronic collage,Â Crowd Noise, came out back in December and also happens to be the Cambridge producer’s debut period.Â Boomkat describes this as “UK soundboy pressure” – the whole thing feels like it’s trying to contain one violent explosion of sound. It sputters, it scratches, it rings – this is seemingly devoid of a label. One thing I can tell you for sure – get those subwoofers out and ready to go. Listen toÂ Crowd Noise below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
Beneathâ€™s Mistry declassifies the debut drop of UK soundboy pressure from Gaunt for public consumption. The Cambridge-born, Brixton-based producer may be fresh to the game but comes steeled for the rave with four tracks of blunt bass and toiling percussion that sound like theyâ€™ve been at it since â€™92, wearing down their threads and cogs until theyâ€™re sufficiently grinding for 2015.
The Hessle-favoured drunken master rolige of Crowd Noise jumps up first with drily functional dynamics, whereas JP trips out to electro-avian chatter and tribal chant socked with gut-punch subs. Likewise, the lop-sided MMRH is sure to scatter the dance with bullying force but, the electro- filleted triplets of SP12 prove a deft mix of gloomy voices, viscous subs and dub sleight thatâ€™s cannier than his brutish gestures may first indicate.
