LOVE FROM ABOVE
Bass-heavy club sounds from Sputnik One on the next Wisdom Teeth release.
Dublin rising star Sputnik One lands on Facta and K-LONE's Wisdom Teeth with his most accomplished record yet: a flawless four-tracker of mutant dancefloor gear that draws on broken UK techno, psychedelic tribal, footwork and ravey post-hardcore. Fans of his standout outing on Well Street Records earlier this year will have a good idea of what to expect here: uniquely voiced and refreshingly forward-thinking bass-heavy club tracks at a range of tempos, all unified by a distinct sonic palette that pits glossy digital synths against raw organic samples and found sounds. There are echoes of Shackleton and Olof Dreijer in 'Love From Above' and 'Michael Cera', whilst 'Microbead' and 'Powder' offer refreshed and refined takes on modern post-dubstep / post-hardcore club styles. Across the record the tempo creeps from 130 to 150, keeping all bases covered as late summer ravers migrate towards darker autumn dancefloors. [info sheet from distr.]
