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.
