Exciting grime experiments recorded in the hours following an afterparty.
The same goes for Keysound Recordings, Dusk and Blackdown's label, which has been behind some of the genre's seminal releases. The results of this meeting of minds are as good as you'd expect. "PIFFD" is a sparse but heavy grime track, a mess of bass and glitches anchored by a sampled vocal shouting the track's title. Where "PIFFD" lurches and stutters, "FLYTNURSE" plods and swaggers, the pulse disrupted only occasionally by harsh noise, like a train derailing. On the "DARQMIX," some elements are toned down, but subtly, and the EP's weirdness is made more vibrant by gentle melodic interludes. Grandiose breakdowns create a faux sentimentality that's destroyed and mocked by outrageous basslines. This music is exciting, brutal and cathartic.
