Noiseshaper The Signal
- Words: Jon Freer
- Label: Different Drummer
This release shows that German residents Axel Hirn and Flo Feischmann can dub it with the best of them. The Signal contains cuts that'll shake speakers within inches of lives, and others that show the music isn't just about the vibration of the bassbins. "Sunstorm" is a gorgeous slice of blissed out dubbiness, with pulsing breaks that are punctuated by echoey drum cuts and a smothering, melodic bass. "You Take Control" uses a slippery bass, proto-house beats and backwards key touches to create a perfect springboard for Jackie Dean's awestruck vocals. A collection of timeless music from deep within.
