South London Ordnance marks his sophomore Hotflush release with an extended four-track EP that confidently flaunts his flair for brooding atmosphere.
Dark, punchy basslines informed by a distinctly UK heritage are his signature and they bind these wee-hour refrains with brassy continuity. From the futurist synthesis of lead-track “Contact” through the jungle influences pervading “Sabre” and “Ritual to Romance” to the whistle-wielding “Output”, SLO’s stamp is as compelling as it is surefooted.
1This release, together with last year’s acclaimed launch of his own label, Aery Metals, a remix for Optimo, his first North American tour, show the young UK producer maturing beyond his years.
