A welcome return for TBD on their own TBD Sounds imprint - finally committing to wax two of the productions Justin and Lee debuted on their Beats In Space show way back in the midst of last year! "Bigs" is aptly titled, crafting a veritable epic flex primed for those much discussed secret East London warehouse locations - with layers of organic melody and cascading rhythmic textures combining atop the rumbling bass. The sudden burst into a huge release of melancholic energy precedes a sonic mutation into a spinal groove that rides the track out. The rattling cowbell that permeates these last few moments must sound especially lethal on a massive soundsystem. "Song Says" offers a straighter take on the house sound, but is no less effective. Indeed the array of outer galactic synths and classic Chicago textures that cloak the always pleasing snap of repetitive snare hits prove to be quite intoxicating.
