Aren't you an autechre fanboy? I'd expect nothing more!
Great work Barty. On the one hand, I'm not as critical as some of the coalescing of the drill sound around several repetitive sonic signifiers - the repetition creates an immersive sonic environment, a claustrophobic world, which renders the lack of variation an irrelevance. That it's all similar is part of the point (?). On the other hand, I'm drawn towards those tracks that suggest alternatives - here, Call Me a Spartan, the first Loski track, Silwood Nation, that Taze/Russ flow you were talking about... Is SL drill?
i really do find the rappers pretty unmemorable though. i'm sure it's my problem not a problem with the music. maybe another case of uk sensibilities not quite translating.
Oh I see - no maybe you're right
That's why Barty needs to talk about lyrics and so on, in my view. Cos a lot of ppl still think the drill MCs are rubbish.
