Since their initial forays in 2015 on the label in the form of a trio of EPs and a compilation, the duo have gone on to refine and distill their bass alchemy to reach new creative heights.
This new EP is the fruit of that hard work—opener, and title track "Gimme 6" sees swooping pads soon give way to slurping twisted bass and mechanistic hi hats. "Levying Rooks" injects a sense of frenetic levity—serrated bass and scudding percussion, while "Aperture" is drenched in swooning pads and fizzing, flanged out hats underpinned by relentless mutant kicks.
Too often modern electronic club music is all too content to sit heavily within genre boundaries, and ‘rules'—but SS&A’s gleeful disregard for categorisation and innate sense of melody, harmony and rhythm makes their offerings an antidote to the jaded veteran techno fans as well as the gleeful new jacks.
