Pneumatic "Urda Real Thing"
Over the past 14 months, the Irish Hsüan imprint has been carving out its own space in the bass music world with releases from up-and-comers Drop/Dead, Blacktee, and EOMAC, among others. Now, the label has passed along a track from another burgeoning producer, Pneumatic, who has a forthcoming release for Hsüan slated for later this month. Humbly beginning as a sparse, soulful beat of the futuristic variety, the Irish producer takes to chopping a pitched-up female vocal amongst a host of cyclical synth lines for the first half of the six-plus minute track. Then a few hints of what's to come start to appear—sped-up percussion, a brooding bassline—and finally Pneumatic lets it all go, launching the track into garage territory at just the right moment.
