another hit from the consistant Border Community,
This review is from: Do You Need Help [12" VINYL] (Vinyl)
A review inspired by the fact I can actually hear Dextro performing a live set in the pub across the road from my flat! Border Community have been firing out nothing but quality since day one, blurring the lines between standard dancefloor monsters and IDM style electronic experiments. Do You Need Help is the first track out by a guy that we should be keeping an eye out for. A piece of chill that loops up lazy stumbling beats, a quirky female vocal and echoing bass and guitar. Halfway through the track it switches into a swirl of amience synths. Nice.
Dextro is backed up by a monster dancefloor mix by fellow label mates MFA, quirky Deep Dish-esque beats and the little female vocal is cut up in a most amusing manner, pitched up and down all over the shop! The mid track breakdown gives a nod to the ambient original before kicking back in with more wibbly synths and beats. James Holden also steps in with two short ambient reworkings full of glitchy electronic squeals and fragmented rhythms.
Border Community, more than just pretty 12" sleeves....
