Review: Always known as a wild maverick on the fringes of electronic music, Healing Force Project follows up on stellar appearances for Firecracker and Bedouin to deliver this incisive creation to Wicked Bass. With drums at strange angles and a certain touch of discordant dread around the synth tones lingering in the background, one would think "Kinetic Drawing" is a chaotic, clamouring mess, but instead it comes on like a poised, perfect slice of transcendental mystery. For those wanting a little structure to work such a mood into the mix, who better than Porn Sword Tobacco to shake a little salt into the track with his "Yoga BBQ Night Beach Edit"?
Review: Wicked Bass label is excited to announce it's 10th vinyl release with a debut from Wuffius, a Ukrainian producer from Crimea. "In The Pines Crowns" EP comes with three original tracks which unveil the inspired beauty of the peninsula's nature via his psychedelic house beats.
Review: Ikeaboy is the intermittent project from Damian Tubbritt, who first debuted the moniker more than ten years ago. It's been a long while since any fresh material from this deep cover curio of oddball techno hit wax, but now Wicked Bass have done the honourable thing and gathered up this excellent trio of tracks. "Shape Memory" plies a funky line in squelchy bass and jangling delay trills, while "Living In The Future" opts for a more mysterious, pad soaked trip into spooked out electro. On the B-side "Dayna" sports some forthright drum machine beats and epic sweeps of synths that only serve to confound any expectations you might have about the sound of Ikeaboy.
