The new EP ‘Breakers Yard’ from British producer Blood Room, vaporizes some classic flavours on glowing hot charcoals. Orchestra hits, wobbly synth stabs, mechanically cranking up and springing out. Sparse snappy percussion, populates space with all the groove where it needs to be. A distinctly western feel to this compared with our earlier forays in the more eastern style hardware ambiences; textures are dry and crisp. These deceptively straightforward micro tracks have elements of hip-hop, UK garage and weirdo modular square wave madness in some kind of dialogue, not arguing, playing nicely. Big descending pitch enveloped bass hits pound through the whole mix, club readying the addictive ‘This Got Boom’ featuring some sweet one liners from rapper Sensational; totally dry, like they are in the room with you. As we move on to the B side it’s truly all about the generative micro cuts slip-sliding through chilled improv beats super groovy and got that feeling of arriving from nowhere. The elements of dubwise nostalgia breaking through the staccato rhythms on this record give me that warm glow inside. Breakers yard has a truly natural feel, nothing overcooked, and big on the exploratory sound design. Crunchy and caustic, Blood Room chooses these little sparks of electronic circuit bent inspiration and makes whole tunes, naturally occurring rhythms from a cosmic mental bank. Breakers Yard is a generous work, significant in its wisdom and straightforwardness.
