The closest comparison I can think of for this technophonic, minimalist bass-driven garage is German label Basic Channel-each percussive element is precise, delicate and implies dread. With a vaguely ragga dancehall kick pattern (but at garage speed), glistening ice-blue keyboard riffs and snares that sound like metal doors slamming in an institution hallway, "Sleepa" slithers rapidly into the darkness. "Timber" is an equally sub-happy track with an 8-bar riddim and wraith-like strings. Moody blues!
