Satisfying bleeps and bloops underpin this track from Cyantific, one of my favourite Hospital artists and, for me anyway, from the time when the label was releasing some of its best music. A super roller and very very mixable. No big drops, no fanfares, just bloody good music.
This pretty much sums up the Good Looking sound around then. Danny Bukem had the pick of the best tracks including this one from Danny C and Mike Pears who seemed to record together under a variety of aliases, primarily with the word ‘motive’ in them somewhere. This builds up with a skippy beat then smacks you in the face with some furious amens. Empty at the beginning and end and perfect for mixing, maybe Bukem was asking for them like that.
Beautifully spacious piece of dubstep with the focus on the dub rather than the step so thumbs up there. Beamed in from the some far flung galaxy (well, Bristol) there’s not much else out there that compares to this. Kicks up another notch when a slightly more upbeat bassline muscles its way in about half way through. Superb.
Fairly sure this is supposed to be ‘Caanan Land’ but who knows, I think I read somewhere Ron was slightly religious. Every noise in this tune is jungle through and through, the beats feel slightly stuttery but this seems to be the build up for the tune to break free at 2.20 and soar. Love it, very special indeed.
Released at that sweet spot where all hardcore seemed to consist of the same four noises (plus any sample with ‘feel’ or ‘rush’ somewhere in it) and all the better for it. Put out on the incredibly named Hamster Records. Nibbles!
