3rd in a series of 12s from this hardworking duo. Possibly their biggest cut so far, “Blame’s On You Bruv” features warm synths, punctuated by vocal samples, driven by a brukish 2-step rhythm. But there is still plenty more disco house, mutoid electro, jazz funk solos and arpeggios galore to demand your attention.
from label: “Set 3 from Modified Man brings another diverse bunch of tracks together with bubbling basslines, sizzling, expansive synth sounds and heavy, broken and percussive beats.
Blame’s On You Bruv, combines their signature synth bounce with broken beats via some classic UK two-step vibes, and is the first time we’ve heard a (human) voice on their records.
Glass Army is way more direct, bringing grouchy beats and bass up to a euphoric disco/house jam before delivering an emotional final punch.
Hear Me Calling is 808 gospel music, still nodding at the duo’s broken beat influences. Big, bass heavy, uplifting dance music.
The rest of the EP continues to deliver the bizarre twists and turns, and sense of humour we’ve come to expect from the South London pair. Bumpy, atmospheric, spacious and jazz influenced in equal measures.
