Having impressed on the “Home Grown” EP, released in March of this year, London Modular Alliance return to Hypercolour with the 5 track “Wolves” EP. Once again, a heavy arsenal of modular synths and analogue hardware were deployed in the production of these tracks, each once packing a punch and aesthetic that will appeal to many. “Brockie Det” fires out the blocks with on point electro beats and melancholic pads, whilst “Militant” continues the theme, with dusted drums and thick washes of bass for a real futuristic funk moment.
Elsewhere on the EP, the disassembled arrangement of “Advance & Proceed” gives off a cold and discordant atmosphere, but remains firmly in groove and sonically tight, there’s a distinct jazz flare in the mix also! “Tremors” hits hard and heavy, giving the Detroit electro cats a run for their money, whilst the EP title track, “Wolves” is a busy and inspired slab of British IDM at its very best.
