zuli’s new offering trigger finger is a game of shadowy atmospheres and unquiet spirits. it functions as a spacial and temporal compactor, using sampling and field recordings to reconstruct reality’s dissonance, while at the same time reverse its own introspective character into bass weight and outworked tension. a kind of extremization of zuli’s own roots as a beatmaker for the cairo rap scene, tinged with the clandestine and delirious urbanism of grime and jungle, and fronted by the necessity to face its own dark side. but the dark and crusty sonic palette does not limit the possibility for the tracks to display various layers of emotional content.

grievous angel steps back up to the plate, fresh from smashing the summer with his loser and move down low versions. ripe sense of timing as well - revisiting the seminal grime rydim ice rink from 2003 for rhythmic guidance looks as dapper as savile row on rascal right now.the originals cold, arhythmic arcade game derived brutalism is reborn for the late 09 in 2 sensual and smart funky compatible versions.
it s been a while coming but grievous angel has finally dropped his move down low ukf kiler backed with the sought after remix of loser on devotional dubs. grievous angel is one of a handful of figures involved in the woofah fanzine and could be considered as something of a dubstep and bass culture thinker, casting critical and analytical eyes and ears onto a quick moving and constantly morphing scene. signifying a sea change in uk clubs, he s revised these two tracks as funky edits, shuffling around the dubstep cul-de-sac into a style brimming with elements of soca, bashment, garage and house glued together like the well considered offspring of geeneus, cooly g and sticky (we re not suggesting owt smutty here). both tracks have rightfully been snapped up quickstyles by the likes of kode 9 - who apparently pressed up dubs of move down low as soon as he recieved it - and skream s been opening up recent sets with the flipside killer loser , besides the usual candidates like blackdown, heatwave and brackles all caning it to death. do we need to say much more? tip!
