Downtempo beat science from the UK.
Heat Mover / Battery is Tregaskes's first solo release on Timedance since he slowed to 115 BPM for the colossal wallop that was "Beater." There's more of the same hip-hop tempo here. The muted toms of "Heatmover" strut through deep and menacing synth sweeps that dip in and out of earshot, with a syncopated kick anchoring the wild assortment of bass tones, clicks and claps. "Battery" is even more screwy, the beat moving in an easy, soca-like groove while square waves, a blunt metallic bassline and wavy pad distortions play against each other. One can only expect more dynamic, high-intensity combinations like this to come.
