The ten pieces of this new album follow on the direction taken for the “ADN” album in 2002 and on the road. This new album has a more electronic sound: definitely indus (“Headline”), anxious hip-hop (“Larsen” with the excellent Real Fake MC), more funky (“Spacedunk” feat. 2TT), much more radical and fucked up jungle (“9 Bass Channels”, “Hangar 94/05”), or a really crazy and fluid dub (“On the Roof”).
Nevertheless, this album keeps a down tempo spirit on “Sushit” and “Musical Bonzeye”, true to High Tone’s universe with ingredients that were present in High Tone’s previous albums, subtle melodies and samples from out of space.
The twelve minutes long “Afraid of nothing”, is a truly tripping and lyrical musical journey. This
melancholic track really illustrates its opening sample “Here is a story about being free”… A journey that concludes this “Wave Digger” reminding us of a DJ Cam on “Substances”.
The widescreen melancholia of their 2012 debut, Quarter Turns Over A Living Line, gives way to an urgent and focussed futurism, in the shape of eight fiercely uptempo, minimal, meticulously crafted electro-acoustic rhythm tracks. The DNA of dub-techno, garage/grime and post-hardcore rock music spliced into sleek and predatory new forms.
