After a highly lauded debut on the mighty Hessle Audio earlier this year, our mate Batu’s pressed up 3 huuuuuge trax from the boy called Ploy – strict head business, and absolutely killer.
Those of you who’ve been to a Timedance party recently or the Hotline night in London a few weeks ago will have heard the damage lead track Iron Lungs can do on a system – so unbelievable brutal, and channeling the dread of Skull Disco and hardcore through the lens of bass-heavy half time techno.
The percussive deftness and subtlety that’s displayed in Number 24 shows the work of a true craftsman, Ploy moulding the pads and splashes into the skeleton of the drums to create a beautiful but still unmistakably tough-as-nails 4×4 workout.
Last track here is Footprints in Solid Rock. Put simply, this is massive. Simultaneously a dance track and a full on soundscape, there’s a cinematic bent to the track that makes listening on any kind of speaker arrangement a real pleasure.
Choosing a favourite track on this like like choosing which toe to cut off, so save us and yourselves the time and buy it already.
