ALIAS EP

“UK’s electronic underbelly, this time from bitbin, whose sound instantly recalls some of the classic Skam output, from the atmospheric chord changes you might expect to hear from Boards Of Canada’s bank of synths (‘Lost’) to Bola’s sinewy beats (‘Beginning’). A tad less subtle, ‘The Detour’ isn’t quite as refined as its neighbours, but in its later stages the track picks up, and the detailed, bitcrushed beats might remind some of you of Phonem’s early recordings for Morr Music. Ending on a high, the slow hip hop of ‘Asleep’ once again recalls Boards Of Canada, with a bassline that’s straight off Music Has The Right To Children while a vocoded voice lends a song-like quality to the piece.”
