    The best thing about drill, imo, is the beats/production. I love the stuff where they low-pass all the pads and whatnot so it's got this very clean, buried greyness to it.

    It'll kill my data if I try and do that I think. Its really deft and neat without drawing attention to its itself with those characteristic bursts of speed (without sounding rushed) and little isolated rhythmic motifs inserted within the verses, little rat a tat knots of rhythm. Lots of memorable moments.

    my initial interest was the drums. they immediately made me think of jungle

    then it was the mediative, womb-like quality, which the low pass filters play their part in.

    then luke did that post about the morse code style of mcing and i fell in love with it all over again.

    It reminds me of 40's production, Actress, The Weeknd, Burial etc, it's all got that sanded down greyness to it, like looking at smoke or fog on an HD TV.

    I don't really get the womb calmness but I'm probably being too literal minded

    Like calmness serenity isn't what I think of - enclosure, claustrophobia more

    to be fair that would have been early 2017 or so. the sound might have evolved since then.

    I think it varies from tune to tune, that Loski one is quite relaxing to my ears. The Moscow one is almost unbearably claustrophobic and tense.

    i'm hearing it like bukem. the drums immersed in the oceanic sound world.

    I always felt the compulsion to make songs, a product, was a big factor in the downfall of grime. Horrible choruses so the fact this isn't a song is a big plus for me. It feels like playacting, making a song. Like its not music any more, its playing at being music

    It reminds me of mvuent's thread in that it's all on one level, it doesn't peak or trough so you're just held there, tense. The Loski tune has release and tension all the way through.

    Yeah that's one of the things I like about it. There's variation in the words speed and pattern changes but no ups and downs really. Mveunts thread was too technical for me. Went over my head

    The stuff I'm talking about re: production in here plays into what I was talking about re: surface last night, it all feels part of the same thing to me. I have this bundle of images and associations in my head made up of greys, blues, ice, water in video games, very clean flat textures, chrome etc.
