* Having previously released with the likes of Hyperdub, Manchester's Walton makes his Tectonic debut with 4 killer dancefloor cuts, that combine to form the 'Bulldoze EP'. Drawing influence from grime, house, techno, dubstep, hip hop and beyond, Walton has crafted a unique sonic that will ignite dancefloors everywhere.
* 'Wrench' opens the EP up with a sense of spaciousness and anticipation, building percussive layers meticulously before serving up warped bass and machinated drum patterns. Grime-techno crossover in action - rolling rhythms and icy moods all the way. Following on with the grime flavours, 'Flute Riddim' builds broken poly-rhythms before unleashing devastating bass and a twisted flute sample to great effect. Metallic bongos bounce around rolling claps and agitating bass with the flute motif returning to bring it all together again. * Flip then for the title track, 'Bulldoze'. Distorted drums and snatches of rowdy pirate radio build the mood before slamming into some sweeping squarewave bass action - guaranteed to get heads nodding furiously. Rhythmical elements build and develop, eventually taking the track into 4/4 territory, ramping up the energy along the way. Last up is 'L.E.A.N' which closes the EP with its fizzing percussive hits and mysterious vocal hits, and a melodic line that could easily have featured in The Exorcist! Once again Walton shows us his taste for percussive movement laden with echoes of grime-past splashing here and there effortlessly.
