"Vqarekk" b/w "Colour/Colour"
Genre: IDM, electronic
I'm really digging
this slick 45 from Britain's Jason Kerley,
who designs intense IDM works with the sort of rhythmic intricacy
that would make AFX and Autechre proud. Side A houses
the masterful "Vqarekk," whose very name is an indisputable homage
to Warp Records. Here Kerley proves himself a proficient dabbler in
effortlessly skittering beats and synth chicanery, setting the mood
with some serious bass shreds. All in all, it's the sort of swell
cut that'll churn any half-wit Squarepusher fan into a
foot-tapping fervour. The flipside, "Colour/Colour," is less
immediate (read: less melodic) but blessed with more incredible
rhythms and some nice n' dirty analog synths. All in all, this is
another fine outing for the criminally obscure Dirty Demos label,
whose Guillaume Gargaud album previously turned up on Indieville's Best of 2008 list.
Keep up the great work.
