Quartz - Hydra EP
Stone cold killers from Quartz on London D&B institution, Rupture.
Following up his deadly EP for Metalheadz, the Hydra EP explores similarly dark spaces, creating sparse arrangements with a heavy dose of paranoia and tension running through them.
Starting with the ice cold atmospheres of 'One Ghetto', the title track 'Hydra' follows straight afterward with it's snarling bass and whiplash drum edits.
On the flip the half stepping styles of 'Lies' rings off metallic snare hits in the dank echo chamber and closes with our favourite cut 'Rebore'.
Varied and versatile EP from one of the most exciting producers working in and around D&B - highly recommended.
Gold foil sleeve, sold out at the distro, pretty sure these are the last copies available anywhere - we had em stashed for the re-launch of the site and there's only a couple - move fast, this one's a belter.
