Following on from last year’s well-received 12”, ‘Still/ Ha’ from Dance, Blank Mind return with a debut release from Alan Johnson.
Tom Neilan and Gareth Kirby are Alan Johnson. ‘Goron Sound/Fickle,’ takes influence from the wider branches and offshoots of early dubstep. Their highly-torqued sound dextrously contorts these familiar elements, carving a singular path for themselves. As disorientating as they are groove ridden; collages of samples are weaved around rich swathes of sub bass, uprooted by tough, tribal percussions.
