Xwc - Syntheme - Vol. 3
Intro Priority Lost Touch Fate If I Wanted VPN My Life Pleasure Honor Oak Our Love Black Tide FRF3K Up! Ranging from sweat drenched jack-outs to discofied acid house, Syntheme manages to work the tweaking sound of his little box into almost every sub-style dance crevice imaginable within reasonfiring off zippy lines of squiggle and synthline excesses to blind your ears with white light currents that fans of box botherers from Aphex to Luke Vibert to Adonis will find immensely appealing.
Good stuff. Damn, I was hoping for Jlin :D. With his uniquely exploratory and free approach to beat-making, New York producer Travis Stewart has long been an acknowledged hero to the likes of Rustie, Hud Mo Out On Bond - Common - Nobody’s Smiling al; his recent work has seen him cultivate a harder, leaner club-oriented sound, evidently inspired by juke, dubstep, early jungle, Detroit techno, nu-garage and especially the present mutant house sound of the UK.
But there's nothing token, touristic or box-ticking about this new material; far from trying to ape them, Stewart has absorbed these disparate influences into his own strong and singular sound signature, making for an album that's cohesive as well as intrepid. Opener 'She Died There' lays down the law, existing at the brain-frying intersection between footwork, rugged 2-step and dub-house styles; Stewart's talent is to take the toughness and energy of Xwc - Syntheme - Vol.
3 styles and work it into advanced, highly polished studio Release Me - The Dipsydoodlers - The Dipsydoodlers without diminishing it.
There are still traces of Machinedrum the hip-hop experimentalist: 'Sacred Frequency' Xwc - Syntheme - Vol. 3 precisely the kind of low-slung jeep-banger that's so endeared him to the LuckyMe crew over the years; albeit crafted with a subtlety and poise that his Glasgow fam are some years off matching.
