Description

Scrase - Another

In contrast to his 'Heart' release, Scrase's 'Another' EP provides a dark and twisted journey down more alien avenues - the streaming melodies & warm atmospheres of the previous EP supplanted by arcane wooden rhythms and mechanised bass movements. A small collection of club-engineered tracks displaying a wider range of styles sit amongst intricately constructed percussive tracks, topped off with a brooding remix of the title track by the ever consistent Irish techno duo Lakker. Whilst 'Another' delivers a slab of crawling, warehouse-weight with an Eastern flavour, 'Movon' provides a minimal take on UK bass music fine-tuned to devastating effect. The three percussive tracks littered throughout the release explore a very different angle, combining dusty wooden rhythms with dread-filled tones and complex manipulations, lending the diverse collection of tracks a strong ritualistic feeling.

The first of three percussive tracks, 'Perc 12' opens the EP on an eerie tone utilising primal patterns and tribal timbres; providing an organic, intricately carved backdrop to the rest of the release. Each with their own nuances, all three percussive tracks give a deeper insight into Scrase's output through complex polyrhythmic arrangements. The title track 'Another' layers similarly rhythmic wooden percussion into a more regimented structure, bolstered with bone-rattling thuds and topped with warm tropical tumbles. The track's dance-friendly framework is offset by Scrase's impulsive twist on the traditional techno blueprint, craftily playing with the listener's expectations. The Lakker remix of 'Another' heightens the hypnotic nature of the original, slicing the percussive elements into grainy syncopated rhythms bristling with a feral industrial edge. 'Movon', the first track on the B-side, instantly leaps into action, with huge 808 kicks and tight percussion providing the backdrop to a razor sharp, shapeshifting bassline. Using stripped down, barebone elements, Scrase create's a truly original hybridisation of styles, a hallmark which is consistent throughout his work.


Reviews

"Scrase is a producer who can turn his hand to a range of styles... on Another, his skill with details—percussion, in particular—matches up against artists with much larger discographies." - Resident Advisor (http://www.residentadvisor.net/review-view.aspx?id=15495)

"aggressive acoustic percussion and eerie layers of sound that wouldn't be out of place on an Amon Tobin record." - Norman Records (https://www.normanrecords.com/records/148921-scrase-another-)

"when ‘Perc 15’ — stuck right at the end of his 'Another' 12” for Love Love — gets playful with the marimba shots, there’s a real glorious moment of insight." - DJ Mag (http://usa.djmag.com/content/scrase)
