Bijoux carefully constructs effortlessly smooth rhythm that borders on the fault lines between house and garage, whilst a blissful chord melody induced, providing arguably one of the most soulful moments on the LP — although James Blake and Joe have just as strong a case. I could go on discussing my love for the tracks featured on this compilation.
This is a compilation, and something more is required than collating a number of tracks from various releases a label has put out, a Broken Heart (Martyns DCM Remix) - Various - Hessle Audio - 116 & Rising (CD) one too many Broken Heart (Martyns DCM Remix) - Various - Hessle Audio - 116 & Rising (CD) have suffered from in the past.
It is a fitting representation of the label, a unique imprint which in dictates a strong sense of identity and unity within its releases, a correlation which can established in relation to the first and second CDs.

Review: After six years spent teasing and titillating with a steady stream of high value singles, David Kennedy is finally ready to release his debut full-length under the now familiar Pearson Sound alias. Intriguingly, Kennedy's usual twisted, dubbed-out analogue rhythms largely take a back seat, with moments of tough dancefloor abandon see "Rubber Tree" and the tipsy "Headless" playing second fiddle to stripped-back synth-scapes and otherworldly ambience.
It's striking on first listen, and only gets more impressive with repeat listens. Not Stochastic. Not Stochastic - BPM. Trip - 52 BPM. Played by: Paul MacMajoraHaioka.

Head of the Timedance label and events series, Batu steps up with four tracks of driving percussion and oddball atmospherics. Starting off with the offbeat sci-fi groove that is the title rack, "Off Court" soon gets into some booming lo-end dynamics, complimented by some darkly emotive synth textures. We play and love drum and bass, house, techno, hip hop and everything in between. This blog is our chance to share with the world what we love the most.
That means mostly music. But you might also find a bit of design stuff, photography, illustrations and some other steez. Georgia aka. Thursday, April 7, Hessle Audio presents and Rising. So, it was high time for me to write a blog post, I've been living in NYC for about 5 days now and have been waiting for something newsworthy to pop up and boom!
