tip! riding high on the success of a second release that introduced a-scott & chad to the constant sound fold, the third instalment finds burnski back in the saddle to offer up changes, getting into a more techno-oriented frame of mind without losing that warmth and playful sensibility he has made his own over the years.
the crisp tech house machinations of constant sound continue apace with this excellent transmission from the ever rising michael james. -the story unfolds- leads the way with a set of slick and slender rhythms locked into a quintessential minimal house swing, with plenty of subtle micro sampling bubbling away between the beats. -vshl- has a chunkier disposition, using bolder percussive strokes that punch in unison with the wobbly synth lines. -perseid- is a trippy affair loaded with zippy effects and dubby effects, and then -h15- rounds the ep out with a resolutely deep 4/4 meditation
burnski and jon woodall s constant sound label continues to reach skywards following the formers essential dna album, welcoming the ever-reliable laura jones and stephen brown into the mix with a collaborative effort that matches club precision with machine soul in equal measure. -crystalline- works around detroit motifs to great effect, while -concave- ramps up the swing factor for a spacey number that gets fancy with the fx. -pv- too does a fine job of making the synths ping around the mix with a jammed-out feel, while endian delivers a remix of -nothing lost- that leans on berlin techno dynamics while injecting some colour into the situation.
constant sound founders jon woodall and burnski helm the label s latest 12inch under their constant name, with dub life featuring remixes from blackhall & bookless, s.a.m and a scott. dub life is a slithering, slippery and frictionless house roller with tunnelling percussive patterns, restless drums and myriad synth smears that really pull you down into a seductive groove. subtle vocals add character and ensure this one will keep floors locked for days. jaunt pair blackhall & bookless then step up with a fired up, peak time techno leaning bomb with barrelling kicks, ravey stabs and detroit referencing pads that really grab your attention. the s.a.m. reshape then offers up elastic, spaced out deep house vibes with airy hi hats, lots of height in the drums and plenty of feeling in the slithering synth lines that lace up the track. closing out the package is a remix from returning label artist a scott, whose fine remix is a lovably flabby and cavernous track with oodles of reverb, rattling train track like grooves and atmospheric pads that swirl all around you as you drift in his air beats.
after kicking off their label in style with burnski s your love backed up by remixes from trus me and steve o sullivan, constant sound use their second release to showcase a pair of up and coming producers from newcastle., a scott & richard rowell. mrs j has been burning a hole in burnski s bag for some time now, waiting for the right opportunity to get unleashed on the public good and proper. the quality of the production belies the youth of the pair behind this addictive, bumping tech-house cut, although years spent as residents for the jaunt parties in newcastle and london have undoubtedly fed into the quality of their sound.
