Various Arists- After Silkworm
QS is happy to announce that After Silkworm remix collection is out on Car Crash Set from Seattle.
Our beloved UXO starts the compilation with a track that smells of summer with its beat that rolls into a sweety weirdage fog making the intro gentle and spacey. It's a misleading intro just because the menace is around the corner. Suddenly the atmosphere changes and the motorik breaks into the concrete wonky beat from Harrison Blakholdman who makes the things clear about the incoming future bass aggression planned by the Planet Soap crew involving the selected artists. + Verb Rebubble twists Cameleon into skwee breaks, with claps and vintage synths percussions. Miqi O places a post atomic track that reminds Autechre and Kay Tee stretches the rythm like a carpet for a flying atmosferic pad that comes from nowhere and leads you in a timeless black hole mood where the intelligent machines seem getting sick.
Here comes Bju with a ghostly RNB halfstep which melts in a future garage break with an organic elegance. Pixelord revisits Bags keeping the coordinates of the original track blasting a wonkybeat made of 8 bit, basslines and arpeggios. It's time to make room for a dark and feline interpretation from Damscray of Alex Kid: a dark rave synth fades in to introduce reverse hats that pinch your ears till exploding in a powerfull breakbeat. HOT. Cocobryce puts some fun through out a future hip hop which keep the pride of the oldschool roots with skretches rolling on a baslline that bounce into the headphones. Moa Pillar rapes Indian Care with a future vision that clashes with a flute and singers from far east observing what's happening to the groove from the background. Moresound makes Invictus sinking into a echo chamber envirorment, then is time for Demokracy with a weird synth funk thing and then DZA enters the scene with a low fi grime beat that suddenly crosses a 4/4 kick which accompains a rotten samba sample that blast your mind. Genius! Apes on Tapes do an organic rework of Indian Care with a starring buzzing synth leading the march of the beat. Halps worked on a serpentine bassline which enters a wide and misterious water world where drops behave like percussions. BD 1982 takes Mommy into a spectral afro garage party that ends into 4/4 motor bass from 3 is a Crowd for the ending titles of this record.
This Album is for sure an interesting window for who is trying to understand what's the future of bass music: a brave attempt to showcase the variety of possibilities for the evolution of the language and a well measured selection of new hot producers from around the world which will put the world on fire soon.
Let's ruin your neighbourhood Xmas time pushing your soundsystem to the limit.
