DESCRIPTION

The third, somewhat overdue, installment of Andy Blake’s Cave Paintings series finally sees the light of day. All the Cave Paintings releases are one-take analogue excursions constructed by machines and recorded live in New Cross Gate and mastered for vinyl in Hackney.

3x is a close cousin of 2y. A simple but dramatically effective warmly buzzing bassline is clambered all over by layers of interlocking pure analogue percussion. Machine funk meets the locking crew for a warehouse showdown.

3y heads into thus far uncharted territory. An evil, growling lfo driven bass underpins militaristic percussion that’s slammed hard into ancient spring reverbs and accompanied by the sound of synthesisers being choked to death. Heads down strobe-lit dancefloor action.
