Missed Calls offers two originals and two self-made remixes. "Death Slide" is sparse, but that quality only underlines its strange, spellbinding funk. The spaced-out rhythm seems strung together with twine, and each drum's dry snap sounds like a weird slant on peak-era Roska. Grim Sickers' vocal is snaky and staccato to match. The dub mix of "Death Slide" doesn't do much besides push the MC back. It's fine but feels like a waste of space on a four-track record.
Lamont sharpens his attack on "In The Field," which slips in and out of 4/4 time so gracefully you'll barely notice it (not unlike his peers Wen or Moleskin). This one's driven by a big, boomy bassline that stands out amidst the pitch black, as does Nico Lindsay, whose lyrics drive a wedge between the sporadic beats. It's strange to have a "Devil Mix" of an already skeletal track, but Lamont nonetheless shows off his remarkable skill for reduction, boiling "In The Field" down so every tiny element feels important. There and on the original "Death Slide," Lamont exhibits a knack for powerful minimalism that should take him far in the Keysound realm and beyond.
