"Woodblock" cranks the energy level up considerably with a flight of knocking drums, an insistent shaker and, yes, woodblocks that argue with a squealing and buzzy acid-Nintendo melody. It's the electronic equivalent of a breakdown in some old jazz record when the brass players step aside to let the drummer go to town for four or five minutes. By the end, you've got sweat flying, hi-hats sizzling across the background and everybody's grinning and exhausted.
"Traumatic Times" and "Woodblock" not only meld features of nearly every electronic genre into something beyond dubstep, they draw upon different textures that create a surprising sense of depth. When you consider that LD is a sound engineer by day for Transition Studios, these tracks make perfect sense: there's an incredible attention to the spatial design of the song, with each element carefully polished and positioned. Give the melodies stronger teeth and a little more ambition and we might be hearing some instant-classic records soon.
