Real Gone Kid – Isolation – ASTIR Recordings

Each lighthouse has its own story to tell, one which encompasses the isolated air of familiarity ingrained within these peculiar, lifesaving buildings. Real Gone Kid’s richly intense production serves that suggestion well providing an uneasy interplay of tension between the drums, bass and undulating stabs that seemingly combining in endless numbers. Darkly emotive and compelling in equal measure.

Release: November 26


Xango – Chain Reaction – Astir Recordings

So what do you get? Smouldering drums accompanied by brutal low-end theory, sizzling expansive effects plus a tight, tough intensity all crossed with a dark signature that instantly challenges/ ignites the senses. Defiantly robust this breathes fresh life into memories of those long mid-1990’s nights with its tribal punch defining Chain Reaction, remaining just exciting then as now. A creatively invigorating sequence of sounds and percussion realigns the arrangement to serve maximum potential and I couldn’t recommend Xango’s debut for Astir more than this…
