Horus (Warm Communications Vinyl)
title:horus / solomon
artists:need for mirrors / hlz & mikal
style:drum n bass
the latest roller from need for mirrors erupts with midnight color. a deep, primal bassline lurches up, taking "horus" alongside the tattered landscape of some crumbling empty city. need for mirrors is joined on the a side by hlz and mikal, ensuring that the listener's experience is at times quite dark, even while meaning to feel placid, frozen in motion at the breakdown: something chromatic, a near-piano riff, glissandos into space. this is drum & bass.
need for mirrors continues with mikal on "solomon," keeping to the same sub-station wrecking standards, starting slowly with slightly shuffled hats and a two-step break before voices shouting overtop of the quaking bottom-end remind us, or perhaps they remind these artists, that everything can be made alright.
