Pattern Select aka Milton Jackson and Show-B have gone well and truly back to the raw on this, their first collaborative work together and debut EP for Delusions Of Grandeur. Both producers have been busy on some top quality projects just recently with Milton Jackson remixing Recloose for Planet E and Show B producing for Robert Owens on Compost. The pair met at a party in Munich, promptly fell in love, and soon enough Pattern Select was born.
Kicking off Tale Of The Tape sees the pair go deep n dark on this low-slung groove where demonic laughter rides the driving hats and insesant crashes until the filtering arpeggiated synth line joins the fun. Tale Of The Dub gives us a stripped back, dub-infused version which goes a little lighter on the craziness of the first version but without losing any of the deep, hypnotic funk.
Cottam is a producer who will need little introduction seeing as heʼs been getting hyped from all corners of the electronic scene following a series of untitled vinyl only EPʼs on his own Cottam label. Brilliant releases on Story and Use Of Weapons followed, and now weʼre very happy to have him bring his own unique take on house music here on this remix of Tale Of The Tape.
Finally, another original entitled Matrix drops the bpmʼs further for a lazy, hazy, hiphop inspired jam with deep atmospherics and simple rolling groove.
