After ending 2016 with a host of end of year list mentions, Timedance returns for its first record of 2017. Label boss Batu takes the reigns to present three shapeshifting beat experiments, packed full of twists and turns.
'Murmur' is focussed around a single stuttering beat pattern, played across multiple instruments. After its initial stark drop the track evolves into a more measured form, whilst still ramping up its mind-mashing dancefloor purpose.
Groundwork expands on the theme of subtle, but effective grooviness. Synth lines rise into bursts of spacious noise, ascending into the stratosphere before being clamped back onto the tenacious but constantly developing rhythm. 'Whisper' concludes the EP with giant throbs of sub and woozy but visceral pads; fading into a sea of reverb and modulation. It ends a release full of unpredictable and striking moments that have become synonymous with the label.
