Ekranoplan – Coil

Fine dance music and Cold War history have rarely gone hand in hand but the crafty duo behind ‘Ekranoplan’ have attempted to do just that.  ‘Coil’ is a cold and menacing banger with relentless drum rhythms throughout.  It’s intense and pretty unfriendly, but the entrance of a hypnotic synth brings a strange euphoria towards the end.

A bit of further digging reveals that Ekranoplan is actually the latest project between Bristol stalwarts Julio Bashmore and Kowton.   It’s out on 9th October on Glaswegian label All Caps, pre-order here.

Artifact – Even (Huxley Remix)

A bit of accordion, some ratatat snare drums and Huxley’s house sensibilities make for an enjoyable four minutes. We’ll be keeping an eye on this fruitful partnership.
