Blocks and Escher give us their debut 12” for Metalheadz, hot on the heels of the pair’s contribution to the Platinum Breakz 4 album which was called ‘Madness’. This release is the archetypical Headz sound. Blocks and Escher have an uncanny ability to capture the golden age aesthetic whilst moving head first toward the future.
begins with an introspective edge, with soothing vocals and pads set against rugged breaks. The track soon morphs into a sub bass roller however the mood soon changes and the track turns into a darker affair with mentasms and mid-range basses working with and against one another, the track is a journey through calm and storm in a way in which only Blocks and Escher could do.
Pushed to the edge, paranoid, isolated. Razor is a track forced into battle. The intro evokes thoughts of a machine walking across destroyed landscape with an imminent sense of danger, and then when the bass drops we are propelled into battle with the tracks breakbeat edits acting as different opponents. The looping soundscape backdrop of the track becomes the fatigue of battle. We could go on, but we’re sure you get the idea.
Dark & highly recommended!
