South London Ordnance - Harrier (Preview)
Although this is in fact a small preview of what to expect from South London Ordnance’s new ‘Big Boss Theme’ EP, I felt it was necessary to share. Why share a preview you ask? I’ll tell you why; “Harrier,” is without a doubt one of this year’s most thoughtful and outright funky arrangements. Maintaining a gripping production aesthetic while slashing through the ethereal mist based shade of bass music’s boundaries, South London Ordnance traverses his way through the scopes of electronic music with a rooted footing in both house and techno. The glimmering bokeh inspired synth arpeggios found only in a swelling throb based house track; coupled with admirably crafted techno percussion creates a slightly confused, albeit never uncomfortable, floor oriented atmosphere. This atmosphere then extends, via drums, into a gritty cataclysmic form of intemperate tribalism. Though this is just preview, if this is what SLO has in store for his future productions, consider us fully on board. Make sure to pick up a copy of the immaculate ‘Big Boss Theme’ EP, forthcoming via Audio Culture on Sept. 24th and keep up to date by peeping his Soundcloud.
