Planet Mu Records

Boxcutter 'Allele'

£6.99

A two tracker of freshness from Boxcutter, aka Barry Lynn, a producer who was taking chances - constantly mutating his dubstep based music, way before people started talking about post-dubstep. This single precedes his new album 'The Dissolve', due out in April.

Lead track 'Allele' builds from echoey drums into a tight Juke influenced drum pattern with lots of tight edits, before adding a vocal that hints at old school hardcore, wavering chords and drops, before the whole thing finally resolves into a restrained but ravey breakbeat.

'Other People', on the B-side, simply but effectively mixes hazy, live sounding 2-step drums with a lush bitter-sweet melody reminicent of the 'Other People Place' Drexciya offshoot, which glides subtly through a background of shimmering fx's and delays.
