London’s very own Jason Fernandes slams the “Pigeonhole” EP to the Kombination Research front door after his recent outings on Drumcode, Alchemy and Phobiq.
It’s claustrophobia all the way in the eponymous opener, while mechanized stabs and tense pads make the air unbreathable. Add the gloomy subs to the whole affair, and you’ve got a pretty bleak, post-apocalyptic picture.
Don’t let the skippy beats of “Distant” fool you. Doom is on its way via stabs and hi-hats, all haunting you at the same time. The manic rhythm section pairs together with what resembles a vocal, and it seems as we are reading the diary of a madman.
