Man from Finland Twwth returns from Hiatus for 3 monolithic pieces of futuristic Grime for the Signal Life Finland imprint.
At 10:33, Gang Drone occupies the entirety of the A side – toying with traditional tropes of Southern Rap and Grime, Twwth creates a symphonic ode to a variety of influences, protracting and reframing them through a completely unique lens – the pacing is genius, the melody addictive and the vocal editing virtuosic – that 10 minutes is totally justified.
Animal (A), Forcible, Corporeal, Object opens the B side, and wouldn’t sound out of place on an Ilian Tape record in its first half – the top cut here, for sure. The versatility for DJs, ranging from the Burial-esque atmospherics, the haunting melodics and the tuff bass all makes for captivating listening (and raving)
Last tune Where U Are is the most traditional of the 3 tracks, but this is not to say it’s ideas have any less impact – an insistent r&b vocal sample and ticking hats keep it all straight but the execution is done with such panache you can’t help but listen until the last second.
